Hey guys I’ve been a bit reluctant to use Cufon in my themes, Cufon is easy to learn and to use but I HATE it. The thing is that I’m a seller and if the client ask for a feature I can’t say no the question is:
What do you guys / gals prefer (buyers and authors)?
- Font Face
- None (Just Arial, Helvetica, Georgia, Palatino, etc)
I agree with Jeffrey & organicbee above and only use the google font API nowadays – quick + easy+ rock solid. (although I still browse fontsquirrel regularly and hope one day the googlefont selection will be half as good). Only downside is I find that ‘windows’ displays some of the fonts as a ragged mess – narrowing down the choice even more – but definitely the way of the future.
Surprised that no site templates have this option installed- wouldn’t put me off buying at all
I only use @Font-face these days. You can’t use custom fonts faster than this: http://code.google.com/webfonts
Yeah, I love font-face plus there’s a lot of ready-to-use fonts here http://www.fontsquirrel.com/fontface also, Google Font Directory is great – I’d like to see much more fonts in the future though.
I definitely try to keep it pure with font-face, or even the regular old set of web fonts.
Some of my themes are cufon but I have stayed away lately. I was going to try Google’s fonts on my latest project but none really jumped out at me for what I was doing. I think it would save time in documentation going with font-face but there’s nothing wrong with the defaults for the most part.
