ATypI 2009

In a session discussing font rendering, Simon Daniels from Microsoft announced that Microsoft was “considering” support for the WOFF font format! Other presenters focused on the differences in font rendering across platforms/browsers. There was also a lot of interest in better typographic controls in CSS.
