Web Fonts

Web fonts have certainly come a long way since the standard “Web 13”. In addition to font licensing services like Google Fonts (Google), Typekit (Adobe) or WebInk (Extensis), there are now standards for using fonts on the web! I am way out of the loop!

  • .eot (embeded Open type) by Microsoft. For Internet Explorer
  • .woff (Web Open Font Format) by Mozilla Foundation. For Firefox
  • .ttf (True Type Fon) for Chrome, Safari
  • .svg (Scalable Vector Graphics). not a font, but used as a failsafe.

Read more on their wikipedia pages!
