Because Arial Unicode MS includes OpenType tables, and is thus technically an
OpenType is a font technology, and does not imply that any such font is free and
open source -- since when did "open" ever mean "free" anyway ?
The original term mentioned in this thread, "OpenFont" does not exist (other
than as a programming method in certain APIs), and so, as Peter rightly pointed
out, OpenFont does not apply to Arial Unicode MS or any Microsoft font or any
font that I know of.
