Technical details
The main function of the WOFF format is bundling of fonts linked with documents on the internet. Programs that support this file format for linked fonts should follow the necessary guidelines of the CSS3 Fonts specification. Such linked fonts are available to documents that refer to them and therefore their availability should not apply to other application or documents on the system of the user. There are similarities in how WOFF files and sfnt fonts are structured.
