"linked fonts are only available to the documents that reference them;
they MUST NOT be made available to other applications or documents on
the user's system ... The WOFF format is intended for use with
@font-face to provide fonts linked to specific Web documents."

- S1, http://dev.w3.org/webfonts/WOFF/spec/

I would like to ask the WG if anyone believes this will effect the
common "Save Page As" feature of browsers that have what Firefox and
Chrome call a "Web page, complete" option and what Safari calls a "Web
Archive" option.

With the latter, a single file is created with its own archive
structure that stores the HTML and resources together. With the former
2, a title.html HTML file is created alongside a folder "title_files"
in which all linked resources are stored.

Does anyone expect that when a web page using a WOFF font is saved for
offline viewing in this way, that the WOFF file will not be saved and
used when the page is loaded offline?

My understanding of this part of Section 1 does not lead me to expect this.
