Free font tools > WEFT
Most fonts can be embedded using WEFT; however, some fonts have been designated as 'no embedding' fonts by their designers. Other fonts may be rejected by the utility because problems have been identified.
The 'View Available fonts' option presents information taken from your personal font database in a tabular form.
Here, each font used is flagged with a "traffic light" signifying their 'embeddability'.
Editable or Installable. These fonts are okay to embed and can be used in any Web page, even those where the user can edit the content. See our Client-side graffiti demo as an example of a page that lets the viewer edit the content.
Previewable. These fonts are also okay to embed but should only be used in static Web pages where the user can't edit the content.
Windows core font. These fonts have been identified as common core fonts. Embedding these fonts is not recommended.
'No embedding' font. These fonts have their embedding permissions set to 'no embedding'. If a font is so marked, you may want to contact the font's vendor to see if an embeddable version is available.
Font may be broken! These fonts cannot be embedded because they have failed Weft's error tests. It may be worth checking with the font's vendor to see if they have an updated version.
