One of the concerns we heard about the "EOT Lite" proposal was the lack of
tools available to create EOT fonts without MTX Compression or URL Binding
(root strings). 

We wanted this list to know that we have just completed a new tool called
"EOT Lite Wrap" to address this.

This GUI-based software is compiled to run under Windows, Mac OS X and
Linux. Features in the tool include:
* Wrap a single font or a batch of fonts
* Option to apply XOR encryption
* View TTF/OTF file license info (from 'name' table)
* Does not process fonts with restricted license embedding setting
* View the EOT font header information

We are offering a free license to this tool to qualified type designers,
foundries and font vendors for use to create EOT versions of their own
fonts. It is NOT intended for end users to convert fonts. 

More information on this tool can be found here:
