This is something that I've been wondering about. An example: I make a SFNT wrapped SVG font that has three layers in each glyph: shadow, fill and highlight. A web author decides to use this font in HTML but doesn't like the colors that I've defined in the font. As I understand it, the web author would not be able to modify the colors defined in the glyph layers via CSS or any other means (apart from modifying the SVG in the SFNT). Is that correct?
