    Help: problem with OS/2 table

      I try programmicaly read OS/2 table.
      First part of table I read without problems, but with the second there are some problems. For example, I want obtain fsSelection value, and for any font this value equal 32(bold). When I obtain macStyle from HEAD table, all right. But values of macStyle and fsSelection must be identical! In what there can be a problem?

          It's a little hard to tell without seeing your code but I would guess that you should double-check your code that reads in the panose and vendor values. Since they are arrays, multiple bytes need to be read before reaching the fsSelection value.

            My Code:
            But in panose and vendor information is right. And method of working with tables is the same. But problems only with this table, and I don't know why :(
