Part V: Emerging Technologies > Embedded Font Technology

Chapter 26. Embedded Font Technology

Both Netscape Navigator 4.0+ and Internet Explorer 4.0+ support embedded font technology, enabling them to render your web pages with exactly the fonts you've chosen. Although they are called "embedded fonts," the font information is actually in a separate compressed file linked to the HTML document. When the page is downloaded to the client, so is the necessary font information. Although still in its infancy, this is a great breakthrough for designers who want traditional control over type display.

The W3C gave its blessing to embedded fonts by providing a means for importing fonts (the @font-face function) in its Cascading Style Sheets, Level 2 Recommendation.
