Hello Bob, all,

Thank you very much for reviewing the WOFF specification and submitting your comments - they are invaluable part of the WOFF spec development as a W3C Recommendation.

I'd like to announce that the first public working draft of the WOFF spec (containing all the changes and revisions to date) has just been published by W3C at http://www.w3.org/TR/WOFF/. The WebFonts WG would very much appreciate the comments from www-font list participants.

Thank you,
