Mozilla adopts WOFF for Firefox 3.6

Just the very thought of Firefox supporting the Web Open Font Format, or WOFF, has me excited for the possibilities of future typeface designs on this site.  It’s pretty frustrating having to stick to four or five fonts.  “But WOFF has two key advantages over TrueType and OpenType: WOFF fonts are compressed, so they download faster, and they include support for tags and other unencrypted metadata. This is a significant step forward not only for the emerging open format, but also for type on the web in general, which is still stuck in a state of mild turmoil.”
