Typeface vs. Font

TYPEFACE:

A typeface is a single set of characters that share stylistic unity. A typeface usually comprises an alphabet of letters, numbers, punctuation and diacritical marks.

FONT:

Old school typographers defined a font as a complete character set of a particular typeface in one size. When type made the leap to the digital realm, a font became an electronic file that rendered the typeface in all sizes.

It’s so nice someone can explain the difference so clearly and simply! :)
