Panose tag in font table “OS/2”

PANOSE is a classification number of 10 bytes. This 10 byte series of numbers is used to describe the visual characteristics of a given typeface. These characteristics are then used to associate the font with other fonts of similar appearance having different names.

The Panose values are fully described in the Panose "greybook" reference.
