Last week Jonathan Kew and I went down to attend and present at ATypI 2009, a typography conference that took place in Mexico City this year. There was an entire day of sessions on web fonts. Jonathan and I presented a session on “Advancing Web Typography”:
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.
