Chris Lilley is a Technical Director at the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). Considered “the father of SVG”, he also co-authored PNG, was co-editor of CSS2, chaired the group that developed @font-face, and co-developed WOFF. Ex Technical Architecture Group. Chris is still trying to get Color Management on the Web, sigh. Currently working on CSS levels 3/4/5 (no, really), Web Audio, and WOFF2.
70% of websites use downloadable fonts now, at least at a basic level. But with CSS Fonts 4 support for OpenType Variable Fonts — a single font file that behaves like multiple fonts, or even an infinity of morphing fonts — and for restyling the palette of Color Fonts, the capabilities opening up for typography on the web are extraordinary. In this session, Chris Lilley explains the most recent, cutting-edge developments and also recaps OpenType font features from CSS Fonts 3, to further improve typography with CSS. Learn what's possible today, and in the near future.
