The sad state of web fonts embedding [Armand Niculescu]

Armand Niculescu chimes in on the state of web fonts in 2010. I quote: So for now, if you want wide cross-browser support, you must:

  • find a free font whose license allows you to freely use it on the web;
  • produce EOT, WOFF and SVG variants of it
  • test it on all browsers on Windows with and without ClearType enabled and on Mac and hope it looks decent.
This forces tedious definitions like

@font-face { font-family: "Your typeface"; src: url("filename.eot"); src: local("Postscript name"), local("FontName"), url("filename.woff") format("woff"), url("filename.otf") format("opentype"), url("filename.svg#filename") format("svg"); }
