Font Name Tags

The following tags are extracted from the TrueType font "name" table found in OTF, TTF, TTC and DFONT files. These tags support localized languages by adding a hyphen followed by a language code to the end of the tag name (eg. "Copyright-fr" or "License-en-US"). Tags with no language code use the default language of "en".
