That's just an euphenism to say 'if you are under windows, use the TTF variant,
if you are under any of the other systems with correct OTF support, use the OTF

Just IMHO, of course, the difference between ITF and OTF are blurring away, and
they are mostly equivalent nowadays feature-wise. What is not equivalent are
TTF-oriented code stacks (common under windows) and PS-priented stacks (common
for Adobe & Linux apps)
