WOFF What is WOFF File Format

Web Open Font Format or WOFF was developed in 2009 to cover the needs of the web application market by adding format-specific compression to TrueType and OpenType fonts. It uses zlib compression that gives fonts about 40% compression. Another peculiarity of WOFF format is that the font of the format can include attached additional metadata. This metadata does not affect the way the font renders, but may be shown to a user when it is needed.

SVG What is SVG File Format

SVG or Scalable Vector Graphics font is a type of font format that is based on the SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) standard which is an XML-based language aimed to describe two-dimensional vector graphics. On contrary to TrueType or OpenType, which are based on raster graphics and can become pixelated when scaled up, SVG fonts are scaled up losslessly.
