Hi all,
I'm not on this list so please keep me in CC if you reply to this mail.

I was going through the CSS3 fonts spec, looking at @font-face

http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-fonts/#font-face-rule

The spec lists the following fonts formats: "woff", "truetype",  
"opentype", "embedded-opentype", "svg".

Shouldn't there be a normative (or at least informative) reference for  
each font type?

Even if most of them may be easy to find, I think the spec should contain  
references to them anyway.

OpenType is actually referenced by this spec, and WOFF spec contains some  
references. Anyway I think would be good to add a reference for each  
format in the plase were the format string is defined.

What do people thing?

Anyway,are these the right references?

woff -> http://www.w3.org/TR/WOFF/
truetype -> http://developer.apple.com/fonts/TTRefMan/index.html
opentype -> http://www.microsoft.com/typography/otspec/default.htm
svg -> http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG/fonts.html
embedded-opentype -> http://www.w3.org/Submission/EOT/

Regards,
/g
