Interesting news, Mozilla is planning to expand the web typography universe by introducing a new type format – cutely called WOFF.

Digital design has needed these kind of tools for a long time now, the browser compatible fonts work from legibility standpoint but limit the brand (or individual) expression palette. We can now design from ground up and make sure that the aesthetics are totally in line with the desired message.

sIFR has been useful and much used in the past, but rendering large masses of type is extremely arduous and needs lots of processing power.

Possible apologies for a nerdish topic, however I feel that tools like these expand the toolset that we as designers have and elevate the web typography standards to new levels.
