FON is a font file format native to Microsoft Windows. It began to be marginalized as of Windows 3.1, with the introduction of TrueType, though it continues to be supported.
It contains fonts in FNT format. As such, it supports both bitmapped and stroked fonts; but aside from the stroked fonts included with Windows (Modern, Roman, and Script), it is used almost exclusively for bitmapped fonts. It is sometimes even called Windows bitmapped font format.
