           Summary: WOFF support
           Product: SVG
           Version: SVG 2.0
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P2
         Component: Fonts
        AssignedTo: schepers@w3.org
        ReportedBy: good_weather@gmx.net
         QAContact: www-svg@w3.org


Web Open Font Format (WOFF) 1.0 should be included in the requirements for SVG
2.0. For example it would be a great benefit for the Wikipedia community which
uses SVGs for non-photo-graphics. Currently browsers render the SVG with the
fall-back font, because almost always, the "open-source" font is not installed
on the client PC.

WOFF 1.0 is a Candidate Recommendation since August 04, 2011.

W3C states that "Given the increasing interest in WOFF from browser
implementors, tool creators and type foundries is expected that WOFF will soon
serve as that single, interoperable format and that other implementors will add
support over time." (http://www.w3.org/Submission/2010/03/Comment/)
