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).
