Regular readers should keep in mind that all I said in The End? still applies; the allusion to the X-Files continues for people who understand such references....

Over in the Suggestion Box, Bob Richmond mentioned:

Silverlight 2.0 - font and script support. Font embedding, native vs downloaded fonts etc. I'm not clear this has been fully thought through on the 2.0 Beta.

I must admit I find it more difficult to deal with items from the Suggestion Box that don't have a clear suggestion or question in them. :-)

  1. Was Bob just giving his opinion but wasn't sure where to do it?
  2. Maybe he wanted to see if I could do anything about it?
  3. Or was he looking to see whether I agreed?

In response, I would say 1) okay, 2) probably not, and 3) both yes and no....

I was at the internal MS Text Summit recently, and there was a pretty clear presentation about the project plan over the next few versions. So I think that there is a plan and that things will get clearer here as the beta progresses. So although I do agree that things don't look to be fully thought out, I don't think things will stay that way. I do expect that things are going to get clearer here....

But if not, I'll definitely be talking about it as things get closer to release. :-)
