Font embedding and typography

A session at Build 2009

Font embedding is slowly edging towards a possibility – from both a browser perspective and from a technical perspective. But, what about a typographic design perspective? We’re so fixated on the on the ‘could’ – on surmounting the hurdles of font foundries and their immovable licensing structures – has anybody stopped to ask if we ‘should’? This session will do just that.

I’ll be dispelling myths, challenging preconceptions and detailing how we, as web design professionals, can not only make font embedding a reality, but how we can move beyond simple font embedding to a much richer typographic web.
