Wow, good read! (Didn't have time to watch the video yet :-))

Indeed I always thought PS < TTF < OTF while this is apparently pretty 
wrong. That's definitely something I need to look out for when buying 
fonts. It looks like one needs to check first, how the 
shop/author/whoever defines "TrueType" and "OpenType", so you really 
know what you get :-/

Best regards
