Description
JDK 7's font rasterisers (T2K and FreeType) both support OpenType fonts,
OpenType is the name given to the evolution of the TrueType font specification.

OpenType's tyopgraphic layout tables such as GPOS and GSUB have been
suppported via the ICU opentype engine since 1.3.
The additional glyph format table (CFF) has not worked well enough to support it,
but in JDK 7 we have added that support. 
So now both JDK's font rasterisers (T2K and FreeType) support OpenType/CFF and
we should be including these fonts in our font folder searches and making
it explicit that Font.createFont() recognises this glyph outline format.
