The page itself was designed around a simple HTML table. Cascading Style Sheet features were used to specify fonts and ensure the correct alignment of the text and symbols. At this stage the fonts used were all installed locally.
When we were happy with the copy and layout, we used a tool code-named Microsoft WEFT (Web Embedding Fonts Tool) to create 'font-objects' which were linked to the page. The WEFT tool analyzes the font usage of Web pages, gathers up the required characters from each font used and creates the compressed 'font objects'. It also modifies the HTML page by writing in the Cascading Style Sheet code linking the font objects to that page. If you use 'view source' on the demo page you'll see the format of the code added.
