One of the gems Nathan Willis also covered in a separate article, “Open Fonts at Libre Graphics Meeting 2009,” is the LGM2009 discussion around the Open Font Library, the larger Open Font movement, and what is surely to be quite important, web font linking. The basics are that up until this point, fonts on the Internet have been limited to literally 4-6 generic fonts. With the upcoming release of Firefox 3.5, this will change as fonts can be linked like many resources, downloaded and rendered.
Nathan’s article I’m not doing justice right now, so please go read up on his report about the importance of Open Fonts, and the upcoming relaunch of the Open Font Library in sync with the release of Firefox 3.5.
