Notes:

The rendered webfonts (woff2, svg, eot) are generated with the webservice http://transfonter.org/ from the ttf.

My workflow: edit Fontforge sfd source file, generate a ttf, send to transfonter.org , receipt rendered fonts, integrate in website.

Files details:

Why embeding 4 webfont is necessary? Two words: browser compatibilty.

  • TTF/WOF = support in almost all browser after IE9.0

  • WOFF2 = smaller size, only recent CHROME and FIREFOX can get it

  • SVG = for old chrome or Opera.

and for editing:

  • SFD = Fontforge source files, for editing
