Bez_4_a through Bez_4_h are one-segment quartic (fourth-power) Bezier curves.

The quartic and quintic Beziers shown do not correspond to either the TrueType or the Type 1 font formats. In practice, if one desired to use one of these curves to describe a glyph shape, one would dissect it into segments and approximate each segment by an appropriate quadratic or cubic Bezier. In some cases, mulitple segments might be required to attain a sufficiently accurate approximation.
