“...mean bastards, even though Matthew did some cool stuff for them...”

Saturday 20 September | 14:00 – 14:50 | Session A11 in Palace A

A talk about Matthew Carter’s font design work for Microsoft. We use them every day, on the Web, in e-mail, and in print, and during the summer of 2007, in preparation for a TypeCon exhibition on the subject, Microsoft’s Si Daniels delved into the archives, interviewing participants and gathering material in an effort to uncover the unwritten history of Verdana, Georgia, and Tahoma. Theme: Screen | 50 minutes

Roger Black, Håkon Wium Lie, Thomas Phinney, Si Daniels, Bert Bos
The war over web fonts
Panel discussion

Saturday 20 September | 15:00 – 15:50 | Panel session A12 in Palace A

The typographer and Web designer’s dream of being able to use any font they want for Web page authoring is finally becoming a reality. Or is it? Why are there two competing approaches, and what does each one offer? What is their status in terms of standardization and implementation? Typography and Web publication guru Roger Black moderates presentations and discussions with promoter of native fonts on Web servers Håkon Lie (Opera) and proponents of the more protected EOT format (Si Daniels of Microsoft, Thomas Phinney of Adobe). Theme: Screen | 50 minutes
