Font and typeface file type icon Font and typeface file type

File extension eot is mainly related to the now discontinued Embedded OpenType font format. It was last used in Internet Explorer 8 and replaced by the WOFF format.

This font format was developed by Microsoft and meant to be used as embedded font on web pages. EOT fonts are usually created from TrueType font (ttf file extension)

Font embedding has been a feature of Microsoft applications, such as Word and PowerPoint, for many years. It allows the fonts used in the creation of a document to travel with that document, ensuring that a user sees documents exactly as the designer intended them. Font embedding technology was built into Microsoft Internet Explorer version 4, bringing embedded fonts to the Web.
