A joint proposal to the W3C for a .webfont standard. This is very clever and practical, and I concur with Leming’s conclusion:
We’re hopeful that this is a good format for everyone. It gives users
smaller file sizes. It gives the font vendors a simple format that
allows them to include information about the font. It doesn’t require
entirely new technologies from the browser developers.
Update: Worth noting that this proposal is endorsed by top-notch foundries like H&FJ, House Industries, and many more.
