You may use the licensed fonts to create EPS files or other scalable drawings provided that such files are only used by the household or company licensing the font. They are intended for use for print or on-screen content, but not for UI. Sitka was also the first typeface family designed with scientific legibility studies integrated directly into the design process.


It was developed for Microsoft byMathew Carter, in collaboration with the Advanced Reading Technologies team that previously developed Clear Type text rendering to work well for online reading as well as in print. One of the advantages of the Sitka font comes from the optical scaling addressed by its different weights. Research has shown that different letter spacing, stroke sizes, and x-height can have a positive effect on the readability of different sizes of text. An optical family contains styles specifically optimized for each size and use case — rather than trying to be one-size-fits-all, like many of the typefaces common on the Web.

Thus, you can get terrific legibility in text, and style in display sizes, all with the same family. Reading view for example uses Sitka Small, which is designed with thicker strokes, larger x-height, and looser letter spacing, for image captions, and Sitka Banner, designed with thinner strokes and tighter letter spacing, for the article titles.

Sitka was also the first typeface family designed with scientific legibility studies integrated directly into the design process. Most fonts do not undergo legibility studies. Those few that do are studied after the font is nearly done. Sitka, however, was repeatedly tested throughout the design process. From Windows Vista through Windows 8. I am not an attorney but I think embedding within a PDF falls under this definition. Hope this helps, Si former manager of the Windows font team.

I have a question regarding the new font Sitka introduced in Windows 8. I might have not posted this in the correct forum, but I couldn't find a more fitting category. If I understand it right, the purpose of this new font would be that under the hood it can completely change the typeface being used on different font sizes, so that large headings are really detailed and pleasing, while small text is well readable and legible. Does this mean that the platform does not currently support this new optical font out of the box, but rather the size-dependent font selection has to be implemented manually in my own application code?

You would use different family members for different uses. The app will need to pick them based on usage. Note also that it's not designed for UI only for content, so it's not something you'd want to set generally in Xaml. From Another addition in Windows 8.

The Sitka fonts have basic Latin, Greek and Cyrillic coverage. They are intended for use for print or on-screen content, but not for UI.

I think you've misunderstood the concept. The style drives the font size, not the other way around. In your example you'd typically have different styles for TitleTextBlockStyle, AuthorTextBlockStyle, and ContentTextBlockStyle. Each style would set the appropriate font and font size. The Sitka fonts are designed to work together for these forms, but you have to provide the classifications of the different text. The app will need to pick them based on usage.

By the way I do want to use it for on-screen content and I would render that with DirectWrite. However I don't think it's impossible that someone would develop an app for content-processing like a news reader app and display the text content with Xaml controls TextBlocks or RichTextBoxes.

And I imagined it would be possible to do something like this in XAML:... And I would have expected the platform to pick the approriate Sitka variant for me based on the font size of each of the text blocks. Doesn't this make any sense? I might misunderstand the concept then. I think you've misunderstood the concept. The style drives the font size, not the other way around.
