While Microsoft and Adobe maintain the OT specification, it should be
noted that the OT spec is in synch with the OpenFont Format
specification, which is an ISO spec under the MPEG standard. The two
specifications are not formally required to remain in synch, but this
appears to be everyone's intention, and both Microsoft and Adobe have
been using the ISO standards process to develop and publish updates to
the spec.
