I've used weft for forever, because I didn't need something new, it work fine, and all the articles I read about embedding seemed to focus on new and ever more complicated ways to embed fonts that were dependent on newer and newer technology....which seemed self-defeating. Embedding fonts is used to make fonts more accessible so using technologies that not everyone has/has enabled just seems silly.
Anyway, I'm now doing most of my work on a mac and it's a real pain to have to switch over just to embed fonts. But weft is by microsoft, not mac compliant and is completely ancient. Is there some free and simple alternative?
