I've been supplied with a webfonts kit from myfonts in order to load a specific non-standard font onto a website.
No actual otf or ttf files were supplied, just eot, svg, woff and a css.
The css stylesheet contains the fonts base64 encoded as huge strings.
Problem is that this results in a nearly 2mb .css download!
I read that it's more efficient to link to the otf files directly and since I didn't have those, I used an online converter to decode the strings and saved the result as .otf
That seemed to work and really cut down the size, then i got this warning in safari:
Could this be because I used the online converter to create the otf file or will it always happen when linking directly to the font file?
I see that the message prompt in Safari is mentioned in this article.
Safari asks for permission to use the font with a scary popup box, which I assume is a security precaution gleaned from the Windows Vista playbook.
However the font on the demo in that page elicits no such request from my Safari.
There also seems to be a few others around getting the same message as you but with no solution.
Is this on a Mac system or a PC? If its a mac then it may be the [font book problems or [URL="http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/327/327791.html"]similar](http://www.thexlab.com/faqs/undofontbook.html#Anchor-Avoiding-49575).
