Werner Lemberg is making it easy for type designers to create web fonts that look great on Windows, with ttfautohint.

Hinting can be a slow and expensive process, and many fonts lack good hinting.

ttfautohint solves this, by repurposing FreeType's autohinting system to bring the excellent quality of FreeType rendering to platforms which don't use it, and yet also require hinting for text to look good – like Microsoft's.

Across Windows rendering environments today, ttfautohint fonts look best with DirectWrite ClearType enabled. This is the default for Windows 7. Good visual results are also seen in recent MacOS X versions and GNU/Linux systems that do use FreeType for rendering.
