Open Type fonts are a wonderful thing. The same font file that works cross-platform and looks the same in both Windows and MacOS. But OpenType has a subtle and rarely noticed "defect": the nomenclature for the font's family and style can differ between the two platforms.

What Windows would call "Roman", MacOS would call "Normal". Not usually a problem unless you or the cross-platform Java application you are using expects the exact same names in all instances.

OTF Harmonizer fixes this mismatch so that both family and style names are the same for both platforms. It allows you to repair entire folders worth of fonts at a time and lets you decide if you want to use the MacOS or Windows naming.
