Hey folks,

I’m building a theme in which i’m using Sans Pro font using @font-face technique manually. Now the thing is, SVG version of font is very sharp, clear and looks very good in browser.

But if i use the same font using google fonts service, it uses svg version of font only if other formats are not supported by browser and even if we use @font-face technique by manually declaring its property and putting SVG format on top only chrome and safari browser use it, all other browsers use other formats of the font which simply does’nt looks good. See the image below …

I know its a well known issue, especially with google fonts as mentioned here: http://www.fontspring.com/blog/smoother-web-font-rendering-chrome

Now the questions are …

1: I wanted to know, whether NOW there is any method to create exactly same looking formats of font using svg format file of font? If so, it could work with manual @font-face method.

2: Using google fonts, i know we cannot provide files manually for font formats but is there any way to force google to prioritise svg version of font file so that it looks good atleast in chrome and safari?

Looking forward for your suggestions.

Regards

Hi DesignLinks,

maybe this method could help in some way – http://typerendering.com/

But as you said, this is a hard task in order to generate a “universal” rendering for each browser.

Good luck!
