CSS3 Fonts discussion at Typecon 2010

Friday, August 20th, 2010

This week I spoke at Typecon in Los Angeles, a large gathering of folks interested in type. I did a presentation on new features in the CSS3 Fonts spec. Three hours were allotted so there was plenty of time for discussion during the session. I went over the details of font selection, the mechanics of the @font-face rule, and described the proposed new font-variant subproperties for supporting OpenType font features.

Below are the slides from the presentation.

Dave Crossland wrote up a nice summary mixed with commentary on his blog.

Thanks to John Hudson and Christopher Slye for coordinating the session.
