Recently, a new version of Mozilla has been released for Mac OS 9 — an operating system no longer sold or supported, and with no new hardware available to buy. Dubbed Classilla, it aims to provide 'a modern web browser running again on classic Macs,' and the currently-released build seems to work well on my old PowerBook 1400 — despite being a little memory-hungry."

introduction of WebFonts
from W3C, are there any projects
underway to develop a real Web Font format, or are Type1 and Truetype
thought to be sufficient? Secondly, I seem to be at a loss to find
any decent and open font creation tools, especially ones capable of
Unicode. The best I've found is
GETO which seems to have
been abandoned about a year and a half ago, without notice. I've
had a long standing desire to get my feet wet designing one or two
decent Unicode fonts, but most of the options seem to only be
available for MacOS9, Win32 and require far higher prices."
