When was the last time a web developer designed so much as one glyph in an Opentype font?
Have you?

Yet Illustrator, Corel Draw, Inkscape _all_ generate content with SVG fonts.

ASV, Batik, Safari, Chrome, Opera and _all_ shipped (> 700 million) mobile viewers
support SVG Fonts.

Firefox currently is the only browser aligning  with IE9 in ignoring SVG Fonts in their
implementations.

Astounding!
