Apple StyleWriter 1200 Fonts

Internal Fonts

The StyleWriter 1200 uses bitmap (or TrueType) fonts. The Macintosh sends a bitmap of each page through the serial connection to the printer. A bitmap is a dot-by-dot "guide" to each letter or image on the page. It is created in QuickDraw, the Macintosh's internal language.

The following TrueType are shipped with the StyleWriter 1200:
