           Summary: downloadable font support missing

            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML5 spec (editor: Ian Hickson)
        AssignedTo: ian@hixie.ch

As presently defined, HTML5 does not specify any standard mechanism for
referring to downloadable fonts. In particular, HTML5 refers to CSS 2.1 WD, in
which the @font-face rule no longer exists (in CSS2 it was defined). Indeed,
HTML5 does make one informative reference to @font-face, but again fails to
refer to any defining specification.

In order to support user defined and downloadable fonts, HTML5 should make
reference to the CSS3 Fonts Module which defines the @font-face rule.
