The webOS Wish List: Browser CSS font support

As a website, on of our favorite advancements in web technology has been the adoption of server-stored CSS fonts. Here on webOS Nation, for example, we make liberal use of the ITC Lubalin Graph font family, designed by Herb Lubalin in 1973. It's a beautiful geometric font with slab serifs that works well at a variety of weights. It's no-nonsense, yet quirky at the same time.

But if you're the type that only visits webOS Nation on your webOS device, that's something you'd never know, as the current implementation of WebKit in all versions of webOS lacks support for fonts that aren't basic web fonts. If the browser doesn't recognize the font, you get Prelude, which while a beautiful font in its own right, doesn't do justice to the choices made by a growing crowd of design conscious websites. For an operating system that's built around web technologies, it's almost silly that webOS doesn't support something as simple as rendering text in a font stored on a server.

Have your own thoughts on this or any other webOS Wish List entry? You do, we get it. That's why we have the comments, it's your place to say how right - or how wrong - we are. And we have little doubt you have your own ideas as to what ought be on the webOS wish list, and so we've created a forum thread just for that - and an awesome discussion it has proven to be.
