The document is in the wrong format, and not easy to read (screaming a lot
helps), but you can infer from it what Microsoft and Adobe apps expect of
recent fonts. It sucks but as far as I know it's the best source we have right
now. I won't pretend I know it well enough to interpret it by memory.

No doubt our proprietary friends have a better version somewhere in their
internal documentation silos.
