No - but if there is going to be a meta data format for web-fonts it 
would be nice to ensure that it did not conflict with and maybe that it 
worked well together with whatever this Windows 7 font meta data format 
is. At least some of the information is bound to be he same.

Anyway do you know where we can find the details of this MS font 
metadata file?
