In digital typography, a font is almost the same thing as a typeface. This justifying the usage which occurs when for example, the Helvetica typeface which includes Helvetica light, Helvetica regular, Helvetica bold, and Helvetica black, is referred to as a font for one of the mentioned fonts, or for the whole Helvetica typeface.
