Font embedding news

Various sources

The release version of Microsoft Web Embedding Fonts Tool version 3 is available for download. WEFT 3 lets Web authors create 'font objects' that are linked to their Web pages so that when an Internet Explorer user views the pages they'll see them displayed in the font style contained within the linked font object. A beta version of WEFT 3.1 is also available via the WEFT community site.

Microsoft set up the WEFT community site for WEFT users to communicate with each other and WEFT's developers. The Microsoft WEFT users Web Community is an open community with over one thousand members. Anyone can join, contribute questions, answers, tips and tricks. If you've been using WEFT for a while or are new to the tool be sure to join today. Although the community was set up to support WEFT, the discussion of other font embedding technologies is encouraged.
