I have the telugu (indian language) font (ttf) downloaded from one of the websites. I also have a Transliteration tool so no problems on that front. I downloaded WEFT and made a eof file. And during making the eo, it asked me, if i want to restrict the use of the eot file in a particular domain and i choose my domain. So wrt to users using explorer my problem is solved.
Now coming to netscape users. I need to make a ".pfr" file, and as i understand "webfont maker" and "hexweb fonntography"
(not sure of the names) are the tools and unfortunately, very costly.
Just to give a try I went to one of the websites using the font i want to use and saw the link to the -pfr file he uses and downloaded it (it allowed!) and then i used a link to this .pfr file in my domain and saw that IT WORKS!
Is this possible? doesnt webfont maker and the other tool have options to restrict the use of these files in particular doamins?
Or is it that there is a default option to use it in any domain kind.
Please do tell me. And by the way, the font maker had a problem in my redistributing the font ( which i wont do!) but no problem in using it! using his ".pfr", will it lead to some copyright violation or anything like that.
All your suggestions on this are welcome.
