Thanks for the info about Fontex. It’s not a service I’ve used but I’m bookmarking it now. I know you mentioned Font Squirrel but I wanted to point out their @font-face kits that include multiple versions of the font (eot, ttf, etc) as well as the CSS code and license for each font. It’s pretty freakin’ sweet and a real time-saver.

Thanks for the great round up.

I’ve tried several font kits from FontSquirrel, but the display quality of the fonts is not convincing. Either the conversion into EOT or SVG causes this, or the browsers are simply not up to the task to handle fonts on that level.

We’re still not there if we want to achieve good legibilty. But if we want to fool around with exotic fonts to show off that web fonts are technically here, then that’s OK, I guess.

I discovered that if you resize the font to some arbitrary size (I used the font-size: 62.5% thing that makes 1em=10 pixels) then the rounding errors completely destroy the look of most fonts. I took this out, and the fonts suddenly sorted themselves out.

This is a really old thread, but I wouldn’t worry about kmeleon browser at all.
