will IE9 include some new fonts?
..not even new - just at least the entire Segoe (UI, light etc) family.
I know it is in Vista and windows 7 and recent Offices - but it would be great to have some new web fonts...
*if you remember my take on this - buy corel - add 2000 fonts for the web - free. (installed default for windows users)
= Got windows? the web has 2000 fonts now! (not the 20 fonts we have had for the last 15 years) - with the ONLY new ones coming from Microsoft.
get back to your - we love fonts - web roots....
if not 2000 ... at LEAST segoe family... SOMETHING.... ANYTHING NEW!!!!
EDIT: and if you are worried about windows (again) just make the web fonts (clean-roomed web fonts - like copeland did at corel) - not high quality enough to use for printing high res - but good enough to read on screen and print in laser / bubblejet document formats.
THEN - people still need office for high quality prinit fonts - but the web gets 2000 fonts - only in windows
and last WEFT .... or WTF? Move all that stuff out of browser and make regular "font face="whatever.ttf" call some invisible MS font DB - that ok's it
on mac? sorry. on linux? sorry. (id make them available to all - but thats me)
ie; "Today Microsft changes the web" "MS offers - 2000 fonts for web - hurray!" "MS leaps ahead on publishing - 2000 fonts for web" "Not your fathers Internet anymore: MS - 2000 web fonts"
*in other news: Google issues statement: "there's more than one font?"
