New font technologies for new media

Typography on the web has dramatically progressed in recent years, and the introduction of webfonts has nearly closed the gap to the printed world. The new media have their own rules, however. How do font makers react and what do the type users have to consider? Good webfonts are not merely desktop fonts repackaged as WOFF or EOT, and choosing the format is more than a technical detail. What are the differences between the different systems and formats? How can the rendering be controlled? Why do well-hinted fonts look better? How can I get the most out of the fonts while achieving standards compliance?
