How we built it

SVG (1.1) Fonts (removed)

Use the SVG based font format (that non WebKit based browsers never implemented) as a @font-face web font.


While support is removed for most platforms, Windows systems older than Windows 7, that use GDI based font rendering, instead of DirectWrite based font rendering, still support this feature, but the feature is considered deprecated and will be removed at a later date.
