I love fonts, and would like it if people on here could share information on using fonts on websites.

Ok we all know the generic font-family stuff We also know the Cufon methods Theres also font apis , and @font-face Scaleable web icons using webdings etc such as Pictos

So whats the go, what is the best way to move ahead, with custom fonts that the majority of your website visitors can be wowed by, and see !

What renders best, what is SEO friendly.

...........................................................

I ask because many fonts I like, I am unsure as to how to implement them. Be good for members with better understanding to help the rest of us.

The best, and only way, to guarantee that all users, no matter the browser they’re using, is to use @font-face (as long as you do it correctly).

Check out my Font Uploader (if you’re using WordPress).

Font Squirrel is an awesome website that allows you to generate cross-browser @font-face code. Check it out.

Thanks Mordauk.

Exactly my point, is how to do it correctly.

I do use font squirrel, its very good. But as fonts are such a rich part of web design, I think we need a really engaging section on the use of fonts, as you say , correctly.
