Arial is a typeface. 10 point, bold, and other 'elements' that can
have values ascribed are fonts.
Semantically, handwriting can't be a typeface as it isn't type. So I
suppose it would be a style.

Can someone please explain the difference between font and typeface?
also curious about handwriting. When a person writes in manuscript
cursive is that considered a font or typeface or some sort of style?
