Web fonts: the public face

Three recent things show how far, at least in public, web fonts have moved.

Google’s web fonts subscription service, with its previewer

Apple’s attempt to own HTML5 (associated with its efforts to diss Flash), including a natty web fonts/visual effects demo that only runs on Safari (unless you play with the referer string, I hear)

And finally, an excellent roundup of the state of play by Richard Fink on A List Apart.

Slightly further behind the scenes, the W3C Web Fonts Working Group is currently bickering about the format of metadata in WOFF files, so I am confident that the spec will move forward in the none too distant future. Happy days!
