The TeX Font Server project's objective is to resolve the font problems associated with DVI files by leveraging the WWW facilities; this will remove a major impediment to the portability of DVI files; it will enable anybody using a TFS-aware DVI driver to view and print any DVI document even if the document uses non-standard fonts. It should also enable completely trivial installations of TFS-aware DVI drivers; the user will not have to be a TeX wizard just to view and print DVI documents.

The TFS consists of an interface specification, as well as a sample implementation. The sample implementation is not ready yet; you can however browse a draft of the TFS specification in order to get an idea about the project. Any ideas, comments or criticism are very welcome.
