I will introduce how digital fonts work, how webfonts work, and focus on how to make Chinese fonts load faster, so that they are accessible via the web. In particular, I'll share about "dynamic subsetting", that is, deleting unused glyphs in a font, according to the content of the web page. I'll also talk about available libraries, caching and deployment consideration, and alternative approaches.
If I have more time, I can talk about other Chinese layout topics, such as vertical layout（直排）on the web, browser features like CSS unicode-ranges, etc.
