It would be great if the browser support for SVG-in-OT fonts would be listed.

Example page:
http://xerographer.github.io/reinebow/
"This is a SVG-in-OT Color Font. [as of 2016-06-07] Only Firefox, Thunderbird and other Gecko-based applications can display the color version."

I demonstrated such fonts last week in a talk at Scotland CSS. using Frefox). People really like them. Supposed to be coming to Windows 10, too:

A useful blog posting about building such a font (tools, etc)

I wrote: https://github.com/eosrei/scfbuild to make SVGinOT fonts: https://github.com/eosrei/emojione-color-font and re-used it to build the xerographer fonts. Happy to answer any questions.

Also see @bramstein's overview of [color font support](http://stateofwebtype.com/#Color fonts) (and the links at the bottom there). ChromaCheck can also be accessed directly here. It is a bit more reliable than the "color-font-test.html" one.

This particular color font format is also the color format supported by Adobe, including in latest versions of Illustrator and Photoshop. Firefox and Edge also support it.
