Cufon vs. WOFF

Would like to get some professional opinions on Cufón. Specifically, I'm wondering if you see it in a similar light as WOFF. IE: It is a web-only format and can't be installed on a desktop machine. I'm starting to see some designers offering Cufón support in their pro licenses.

So, would you equate the two to be similar? Can you see any downside to Cufón from an IP perspective?

The only downside I can see, is that 1) It is a text format and therefore easy to edit out domain links. 2) It is easily downloaded and installed on your own website. But it is impossible (from what I can tell) to turn back into an OTF. I can already turn a WOFF back into an OTF.

Why or why don't you support Cufón?

Web fonts - foundries allowing sIFR, FLIR, cufón, @font-face, etc.


is anywhere a table showing which foundry supports and allows which webfont technology? I couldn't really find anything close to what I mean, so I put together quickly this draft:

Is there something like this already? Or should I publish it and kindly ask you to help me with adding more foundries?

Thank you
