    type conversion solutions?

    does anyone here know of any php solutions for converting
    True Type fonts to Embedded Open Type fonts (.ttf to .eot)

    I know there is a Microsoft utility for doing that: WEFT, but it
    runs on Windows platform and I am using Unix based servers.

    I want to develop scripts to do bulk conversions.

    Thanks for time, attention, suggestions, advice

    ( actually, I have heard a rumor that Microsoft is trying to, or
    has acquired php. Is that true?)

    I'm not familiar with any method built in to php to convert a ttf to an eot. Linux likely has a program available to do this though, which you can then call using system or exec. Alternatively you can delve into the structure of the files themselves and attempt to pick them apart and assemble them in the proper format. You may need to consider a TOS/EULA violation though in doing so though.
    As for zend selling, there is no such word. Only rumors from what I hear. All I can say is it'd be better IMO if oracle were to acquire zend instead of microsoft.
    PHP Code:
    header('HTTP/1.1 420 Enhance Your Calm');
