Re: New work on fonts at W3C


You appear to have shown that Akamai is invisible to browsers for the
puposes of @font-face :)

Akamai is not invisible to the UA.  For instance, if you visit, images are served from different domains:,,  These are
actually aliases for Akamai servers:

$ host is an alias for is an alias for is an alias for is an alias for has address has address

Of course, a font that permitted use by * wouldn't
actually have an issue here, unless the browser follows CNAMEs before
determining whether the restrictions apply (which would make no sense,
AFAICT).  It would be an issue if the site linked directly to instead of using an alias.
