Fonts Activity Statement

Fonts for Web documents come from different sources: they can already be on the reader's machine, they can be carried inside the document (possible with SVG, e.g.), or they can be indicated with a link and downloaded on demand. That last possibility exists in CSS and SVG under the name of Web Fonts. It's often also simply called @font-face.

Highlights Since the Previous Advisory Committee Meeting

The WebFonts Working Group published an Evaluation Report for WOFF 2.0, followed in May by a First Public Working Draft of the WOFF 2.0 specification.

A proposal for SVG Glyphs in OpenType, created by a W3C Community Group, was accepted for standardization by ISO SC29 as part of Open Font Format.

Upcoming Activity Highlights

The Working Group expects to enter Last Call for WOFF 2.0 before the end of 2014.
