Default Font Collections

Reflection X Advantage provides font collections commonly required to support X client applications. All of the X11R7 fonts for The Open Group are available at 75 and 100 dpi (dots per inch resolutions). Font collections are also available from Hewlett-Packard, Digital Equipment Corporation, Sun, and IBM, along with fonts for Japanese hosts and for Unicode (where supported).

The Reflection X server has access to all of the fonts in the Server Font Path list. When an X server receives a protocol request about fonts from a client application, it searches these font collections to satisfy the request.
