What started as a nice little introduction to two new font technologies turned into something much bigger. I wanted to write a simple, informative blog post to introduce people to Typekit and Kernest. I thought you should know a bit more about the exciting new capabilities of @font-face specification in modern browsers. But as I began writing it, I found the issue of web-font-embedding was much more complicated than I had previously thought. So it turned into a great, big, informative essay called The Sad State of Today’s Web Typography: Fertile Ground for Font License Revolution. It’s up at now, but feel free to post responses and comments here.
