Safari now supports dynamic fonts in TTF/OTF, but the vast majority of web
pages that use dynamic fonts (as of today) use EOT format. Until recently, the
EOT format is not known in the public so that it's not possible to support it. 
However, I've just found that Microsoft had submitted the following document to


This will help Safari (and other webkit-based browsers) penetrate South Asisan
(Indian subcontinent and its vicinities) and Southeast Asian markets where EOT
format dynamic fonts (and 'font-encoding') are still widely used in place of
the proper Unicode encoded documents.
