Hi *,
Sorry if this is a wrong address. I read an article about WebFont
which will support displaying "foreign" (such as Japanese, Arabic,
etc.) web sites in our "Latin" browsers by loading required fonts from
the font server. My questions are:

1. What are the state of this work?
2. Which fonts are supported? e.g. Arabic?
3. I think that even if one can load fonts from server, do all OS
  support them? What I want to say is, it is possible that the required 
 font has been loaded, but the OS can not display them.

Any comments are welcome.

Thanks in advance,

Hachim
