Thank you for your interest.

The following introduction is good. 

Here are links to documentation files from Microsoft. 

Here is a link to an overview of the OpenType font format. 

Best regards,

So  when I saw the solution that Microsoft produced I was very impressed
by the elegant and straightforward way that the people at Microsoft
encoded colour fonts, as that elegant way to achieve the result had not
occurred to me.

For those of us not familiar, can you provide a link to the
description? A casual search for "color font microsoft" brings up
results that say there are several ways to "do" color fonts in
Windows, so it's not immediately clear what you're referring to.
