Description

Independent Metadata can be stored using this file format with information on a font.

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