Web Open Font Format for Firefox 3.6

This article was written by John Daggett. John is a Mozilla contributor and has been working hard with font creators and web developers to improve the state of fonts on the web. This article is a high-level overview of whats different and shows some examples of WOFF in use. A full list of other supporting organizations can be found at the official Mozilla Blog.

In Firefox 3.5 we included support for linking to TrueType and OpenType fonts. In Firefox 3.6 we’re including support for a new font format – the Web Open Font Format, or WOFF. This format has two main advantages over raw TrueType or OpenType fonts.

  1. It is compressed, which means that you will typically see much smaller download sizes compared with raw TrueType or OpenType fonts.
  2. It contains information that allows you to see where the font came from – without DRM or labeling for a specific domain – which means it has support from a large number of font creators and font foundries.

The WOFF format originated from a collabaration between the font designers Erik van Blokland and Tal Leming with help from Mozilla’s Jonathan Kew. Each had proposed their own format and WOFF represents a melding of these different proposals. The format itself is intended to be a simple repackaging of OpenType or TrueType font data, it doesn’t introduce any new behavior, alter the @font-face linking mechanism or affect the way fonts are rendered. Many font vendors have expressed support for this new format so the hope is this will open up a wider range of font options for web designers.

Details on Differences between TrueType, OpenType and WOFF

First, compression is part of the WOFF format so web authors can optimize the size of fonts used on their pages. The compression format is lossless, the uncompressed font data will match that of the original OpenType or TrueType font, so the way the font renders will be the same as the original. Similar compression can be achieved using general HTTP compression but because compression is part of the WOFF format, it’s simpler for authors to use, especially in situations where access to server configuration is not possible.

Second, the format includes optional metadata so that a font vendor can tag their fonts with information related to font usage. This metadata doesn’t affect how fonts are loaded but tools can use this information to identify the source of a given font, so that those interested in the design of a given page can track down the fonts used on that page. Fonts in WOFF format are compressed but are not encrypted, the format should not be viewed as a “secure” format by those looking for a mechanism to strictly regulate and control font use.

Note: until Firefox 3.6 ships, users can test the use of WOFF fonts with Firefox nightly builds.

Examples

Below is a simple example that shows how to construct an @font-face rule that links to a WOFF font. To support browsers that only support direct linking to OpenType and TrueType fonts, the ‘src’ descriptor lists the WOFF font first along with a format hint (“woff”), followed by the TrueType version:

/* Gentium (SIL International) */
 
@font-face {
  font-family: GentiumTest;
  src: url(fonts/GenR102.woff) format("woff"),
       url(fonts/GenR102.ttf) format("truetype");
}
 
body {
  font-family: GentiumTest, Times, Times New Roman, serif;
}

Structured this way, browsers that support the WOFF format will download the WOFF file. Other browsers that support @font-face but don’t yet support the WOFF format will use the TrueType version. (Note: IE support is a bit trickier, as discussed below). As WOFF is adopted more widely the need to include links to multiple font formats will diminish.

Other examples below demostrate the use of WOFF formatted fonts but each example has been constructed so that it will work in any browser that supports @font-face, including Internet Explorer.

A font family with multiple faces

Using a Postscript CFF font

African Language Display

Below is an example of how downloadable fonts can be used to render languages for which font support is usually lacking. The example shows the UN Declaration of Human Rights, translated into two African languages, and how these render with default browser fonts vs. with a downloadable font suited for rendering these languages.

Note that in one of these examples that the font size goes from a 3.1MB TTF to a 1MB WOFF font and in the other from a 172KB TTF to an 80KB WOFF file.

Another Postscript CFF font

An example in Japanese

Working With Other Browsers

Firefox 3.6 will be the first shipping browser to support the WOFF format so it’s important to construct @font-face rules that work with browsers lacking WOFF support. One thing that helps greatly with this is the use of format hints to indicate the format of font data before it’s downloaded; browsers that don’t recognize a given format simply skip data in a format they don’t support.

Internet Explorer, including IE8, only supports the EOT font format and only implements a subset of the @font-face rule descriptors. This makes creating cross-platform @font-face rules that work with IE especially tricky. One solution is to make different rules for IE:

@font-face {
  font-family: GentiumTest;
  src: url(fonts/GenR102.eot);  /* for IE */
}
 
@font-face {
  font-family: GentiumTest;
  /* Works only in WOFF-enabled browsers */
  src: url(fonts/GenR102.woff) format("woff");
}

One minor downside of this is that IE doesn’t understand format hints and doesn’t parse @font-face URL’s correctly, it treats format hints as part of the URL, so web authors using the @font-face rules above will see the following in their access logs:

GET /fonts/GenR102.eot HTTP/1.1" 200 303536
GET /fonts/GenR102.woff)%20format(%22woff%22) HTTP/1.1" 404 335

IE successfully pulls down and uses the EOT version of the font but also tries to pull down the WOFF font with the format hint included in the URL. This fails and doesn’t affecting page rendering but it wastes valuable server resources. For more discussion, see Paul Irish’s blog post for one interesting workaround.

Another problem is that IE currently tries to download all fonts on the page, whether they are used or not. That makes site-wide stylesheets containing all fonts used on site pages difficult, since IE will always try to download all fonts defined in @font-face rules, wasting lots of server bandwidth.

    Using the mentioned Firefox nightly builds you can see what WOFF could look like on a sample page FSI FontShop International designed together with the guys from Edenspiekermann using both FF Meta and FF Meta Serif to endorse the WOFF specification: edenspiekermann.com/woff.

    Or you could put an EOT-format file at /fonts/GenR102.woff)%20format(%22woff%22)

    Then you’d be able to reduce the CSS syntax back to the first example.

    @Greg K Nicholson
    Yes, but if you edited that list you would quietly break the link to the EOT font. So it’s possible but somewhat brittle in practice.

    For fonts with a large number of glyphs, it is important to have random access to glyph data, so that you don’t spend the time and memory reading in, say, the 32,000 glyphs of a CJK font of which you only use 100. The Deflate compression is stream based, so if you kept the glyph data compressed and read each glyph as needed, as is common and efficient practice with TrueType and OpenType fonts, then on average you would have to decompress half of the glyph data for each glyph.

    Alternatively, upon downloading the font the client could decompress all tables (if you’re uncompressing the glyph data you may as well uncompress everything since for most fonts the glyph data is by far the largest table). But if you uncompress, you may as well rely on the server’s HTTP compression and have a simpler specification. (And if there is no internal compression, the metadata could be put into a new table and WOFF fonts could be compatible with existing TrueType and OpenType.)

    What is the recommended or Mozilla way to handle fonts with large glyph data that is compressed internally?

    Why no EOT support? Doesn’t that mean that cross-browser font support will be a pipe-dream for the foreseeable future (until IE6, IE7 AND IE8 dies, let alone the other browsers catching up)?

    What sort of file format is WOFF? Are Google/Opera/Apple/Microsoft all happy with WOFF, or is it Mozilla proprietary? Does it require dedicated tools or can it be made by hand? Has a spec been published anywhere? Is Mozilla planning making the tools to allow people to convert to and from other font formats? Are the font foundries signed up? What about the font software manufacturers?

    @John
    The resources section contains links to the spec and sample code. You can read more of the background discussion of the format on the www-font mailing list.

    http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-font/

    @Tom Phelps
    Right now the format is relatively simple, tables are either compressed or not, there’s no way to do partial decompression on a given table. CJK fonts are an interesting example, you probably don’t want to send 32,000 glyphs in any form, compressed or not. A format for the future would be one that allowed separate chunks containing sets of glyphs to be downloaded and dynamically linked to the original font when needed. But that’s a very, very tricky problem. Another approach would be to consider a stroke-based format, taking advantage of the common elements in CJK glyphs. But I don’t know of any open format for stroke-based glyphs.

    No mentioning of svg fonts is kind of a drawback.
    Open and TrueType fonts all good but svgfonts provide a step forward because they’re vector based.
    Why doesn’t Firefox support svgfonts, they exist for a while and Opera 10 supports them.

    Besides being an informative post, it’s great to see citations from the UDHR!

    As far as fonts supporting Unicode, I made a request at https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=512619 for Mozilla to consider hosting some very basic (and free) fonts on a server which could be automatically retrieved and cached whenever Unicode characters were encountered but not supported in one’s default font support (and where font-face wasn’t specified). Rather than put the burden on developers (and avoid a potential single point of failure for their users), how about facilitating the download of basic fonts covering all specified Unicode code points for all users (without interfering with the ability for sites to cause custom fonts to be downloaded)?

    This way, the dream of Unicode–for any human script to be practically viewed along with any others without extra hurdles–could really be realized.

  56. […] 1996年Microsoft发起了一项名为“Core fonts for the Wed”的互联网字体标准化项目。包括Arial,Times New Roman和Verdana在内的10套字体可在Microsoft网站免费下载。由于互联网浏览器的工作原理和电脑字体自身的特点(比如版权问题),网页中的字体信息并不像图片或其他多媒体文件那样事先被下载到临时缓存文件夹中,再通过浏览器呈现出来;所有网页中的字体成分都需要调用用户系统中已有的字体文件(例如网页设计师通过CSS指定网页中的字体为Tahoma,当互联网终端的用户浏览该网页时,浏览器会根据CSS代码调用系统中的Tahoma字体文件,并完成显示),一旦用户的系统中没有指定的字体,他所看到的网页在文字显示上就是有差异的,而这种差异有时候变得非常棘手(例如网页可读性降低、设计风格改变或者页面要素布局变动等)。而比较直观的解决办法就是让尽可能多的电脑上(不论采用何种OS)都安装尽可能多相同的字体文件以争取相对一致的显示效果。这也就成为了Microsoft发起这一项目的初衷。垄断的好处就在于人多好办事,那时候的Microsoft权倾一时,尽管2002年公司以用户不断违反“最终用户协议”为由终止了该项目(真正的原因或许是Micorsoft向Mac和Linux用户叫板,Apple在2007年延长了与Microsoft的协议以确保Mac用户可放心使用这些字体,至于Linux用户命运如何就不从而知了,谁都知道Microsoft有多恨Linux),但如今这些字形已经普遍到没有人会去担心自己的电脑里是否安装了它们(果然好办事才能办好事)。其中有些字形进一步成为网页编程中默认的字体方案,也就是所谓的“Web Safe fonts”,至今仍支配着当前99%以上的网页文本。尽管现在主流的浏览器已经开始支持网页嵌入式字体(例如时下刚出炉的香饽饽Web Open Font Format),但想要撼动传统的、相对成熟的互联网字形设计也不是一蹴而就的(况且网页嵌入式字体的可行性有待研究,例如嵌入动辄四、五兆的中文字体就很不现实;还有想来让人头痛的版权问题)。 […]

    Won’t we see spammers use this feature to create spam messages that are undetectable automatically (unless using OCR or using stats on use of characters..): If I create a web font that inverts characters (‘e’ being actually shown as ‘p’ by the font): the content will look like binary data/gibberish but when displayed it will actually read as a spam message trying to sell you some medication. I can see at least http proxy filters being fooled by this system for instance, maybe even emails if your client supports this.
    Any thoughts on ways to prevent this from happening (if it hasn’t already)?

    January 25th, 2010 at 08:01

      These fonts are only usable on the domain where they are stored. AFAIK they cannot be used in an e-mail unless it directs you back to their site.

      You can’t download a font from a different domain at this point for your webpages, you have to host the font.

      The people that create the fonts are not particularly dumb, if it wasn’t this way they would sell exactly one copy. ;)

    I believe some version of this has been discussed before, so it is not a new idea as far as I know, but to someone like me it seems to be a good idea, and it would be interesting to know your thoughts on this. Anyway, the idea is to require the user to have ANY UTF-8 font available on their system and let CSS tell the browers SVG-renderer to draw a font that looks like Times, Helvetica or whatever. If this is possible, the user only needs ONE font installed and browsers styles it into whatever the designer wants it to look like. If the browser has seen this styling before it could cache it to render faster the next time round. Is this a horrible idea?

    There is an important need about about the fonts and that is the progressive downloads instead of complete downloads. I mean that the web fonts should behave in the similar way as it is for the PDF documents. If you are using a ligature based font whose size TTF file is about 20+MB, then only a subset of the font is included instead of whole font being bundled.

    But in case of web fonts, we are downloading the whole font over HTTP which I think is a little in efficient. I do not see why it cannot be done to partially download the parts of the fonts that are really needed. Anew views on this?

    There are some good open source font foundries out there. The ones I like are Font squirrel, the League of movable type and Unicode Font. Unfortunately most of the fonts available from these foundries are not yet available in WOFF packages, so what can I do?

      you can convert them online, e.g. here: http://orionevent.comxa.com/otf2woff.html

      and use them through calling them in the css-file…
