mkeot - generate Embedded OpenType


mkeot font-file [ URL [ URL ... ] ] > EOT-file


The mkeot command writes an EOT (Embedded OpenType) file on standard output that contains
the given font file (OpenType or TrueType) and the given URLs.

mkeot handles TrueType files, OpenType files with TrueType outlines, and OpenType files
with Postscript outlines. (Technically: all files with the "sfnt" format.) However,
Microsoft's Web browser Internet Explorer (version 8) cannot handle Postscript outlines.
To use EOT files with that browser, OpenType files with Postscript outlines must be
converted to TrueType files first. Several prgrams are able to do that, including the free

The URLs that are added to the EOT file list the Web pages on which the EOT font may be
used. They act as prefixes, which means that, e.g., a URL such as http://example.org/foo
enables a font not only for that precise page, but also for http://example.org/foo2 or
http://example.org/foo/bar or any other pages whose URL starts with the prefix.

The EOT specification allows EOT files without any URLs, but is not clear on the meaning
of such a file. In practice, at least in Microsoft's Internet Explorer (version 8), an
empty list of URLs means the font applies to no Web page at all.

EOT font are typically used for Web pages. To that end, a link (URL) to the EOT file must
appear in the Web page's style sheet. A typical rule in CSS looks like this:

@font-face {
font-family: My Fancy Font;
font-style: normal;
font-weight: normal;
src: url(http://example.org/fonts/fancy-roman.eot);
body {
font-family: My Fancy Font, serif;

This downloads the EOT file from the given URL and declares it to be a font of normal
weight and roman style with the family name "My Fancy Font." That font can then be used in
style rules, such as, in this example, to set the font of body text. See the "CSS Fonts
Module level 3" for details on CSS.

TrueType files typically have the extension .ttf, OpenType files typically have the
extension .otf and EOT files typically end in .eot.
