Would it be possible to submit the fonts to Google Web Fonts directory? There are lots of open source fonts so I suppose that there should be no licensing problems.
The thing is that the whole font (even the WOFF version which is compressed) has too big a file size to be comfortably used on the web. Google Web Fonts directory has really convenient features in terms of restricting the set of glyphs according to what you will actually use on the webpage. This allows you to load substantially smaller file to use the font of your choice when you don’t need to use all the glyphs available in it.
I looked around the web for a way how to do this myself (restrict the set of glyphs in the font) but I haven’t been successful. I would probably have to install FontForge on my machine and I don’t know if I would be able to do it without breaking the features of the font. I also tried FontSquirrel’s @font-face Generator which allows to restrict the font to only subset of glyphs to lower the file size but it actually breaks the features (such as ligatures) of the font as well.
Submitting the fonts to Google Web Fonts would make the subsetting of the font easy and its usability for web developers (lower file size when only subset is loaded) would substantially rise.
Thanks for some reply on this.
