If you want to wrap your truetype/opentype font/s you will need sfnt2woff utility.


Check Your Browsers

This web-page contains paras of a complex script (देवनागरी). Please load this page (that you are reading now) in different browsers for comparing/testing their capabilities in handling a Web Open Font that conforms to WOFF/W3C standards.

We have wrapped our main font 'Akhil HE' in a WOFF wrapper for this web-page.

So ideally every brower should display (render) all the text (English as well as Sanskrit) on this page using our font 'Akhil HE'.

Most of the modern browsers are now beginning to support Web Open Fonts.

My favorite (otherwise) Firefox (v 24) downloads the font/s mentioned in the CSS ('Akhil HE'). But it can't typeset following complex text properly!

ॐ भूर्भुवः॒ स्वः॒

तत्स॑वितुर्वरे॑ण्यम् भ॒र्गो॑ दे॒वस्य॑ धीमहि। धियो॒ यो नः॑ प्रचो॒दया॑त्॥

ॐ भूर्भुवः॒ स्वः॒ तत्स॑वितुर्वरे॑ण्यम् भ॒र्गो॑ दे॒वस्य॑ धीमहि। धियो॒ यो नः॑ प्रचो॒दया॑त्॥

So, I have put the above Nagari text in the following embeded pdf so that you can see text typesetted using our font! If a PDF is displayed, you will see text typesetted using 'Akhil HE'! The renderer for PDF don't use downloaded font, rather every .pdf file contains referred fonts. See if PDF renderer for your browser that is showing following embeded pdf uses delta hints from our font, if it does embeded text will be displayed clearly at small point sizes.

You don't seem to have PDF plugin!


This content will keep on changing till most common browsers start displaying complex/Indic text using WOFF properly! Return after 3 months. We will continue testing newer versions of browsers as and when possible!
