OpenType Wepbage Font Embedding
OpenType fonts may be embedded within HTML webpages for display on web browsers
running from multiple operating systems. This technology allows webmasters
to create web-based applications that include barcode, MICR and OCR technology
from IDAutomation fonts without the need to install the fonts on the destination
How do embedded fonts work? The embedded font is temporarily used by the Web
browser and then discarded after the user leaves the web page, so the font
cannot be used for anything else. Using the font tools described here, IDAutomation fonts may be embedded
in HTML web pages and applications according to section 6 of the
Software License Agreement after purchasing a Developer License.
Microsoft provides the
Web Embedding Fonts Tool (WEFT), which is a free tool that allows site designers create
embeddable OpenType fonts from TrueType fonts that are linked to their
web pages. To understand more
information about this technology, please visit
Microsoft's guide to implementing fonts on web pages.
