Webfonts Week: An Interview with Simon Daniels of Microsoft

News | Stephen Coles | November 10, 2009

Webfonts Week continues as we chat with a guy who has been instrumental in Microsoft’s focus on screen typography since 1995. Si Daniels was there for the development of Microsoft’s Core fonts for the Web, the EOT format, and the ClearType technology and fonts. We talk about where he sees Web typography headed and I ask the question that’s on the mind of everyone with a stake in Web embeddable fonts: when will Internet Explorer support the WOFF format?

  1. Thanks Stephen and Sii, great to finally hear your voices :-)

    I’m also looking forward to see what happens with webtype.

    FS – I really like this video interview format – if possible more of these would be great :-)
