Hi All,

I’m not sure exactly how to achieve this, but can anyone recommend how I can embed a custom font to a new site I am working on so all text will display in the chosen font.

Thanks in advance -

A lot of people choose to use Cufon as a JS font embedding solution. Note it’s only meant to be used on header areas etc and not the entire body/page text :)

I prefer Cufon, but you can also use sRIF font replacement and use flash instead of javascript.

I really don’t get it why many people use cufon or flash solutions over the simple @font-face… it works in any browser and doesn’t create additional elements like ...

so basically all latest browsers now support @font-face, I knew IE had it way back but they don’t support TTF fonts do they?

I really don’t like these sIFR and CUFON scripts, I find the text blurry a lot of the times.

I have no problems with @font-face on : IE6 -8, Firefox, Safari, Chrome. Haven’t tested on Opera yet, but I’m 99.99% sure it handles it well.

And btw, TTF not supported in IE? Hmmm, weird, I did see many articles on the subject, but my Rockwell font in TTF displays perfect :)

@font-face FTW !

I’m really sorry for the dumb question, but how do I add the @font-face attribute into my site’s code? (via the stylesheet?)
