New Google Web Fonts 2-dot-Oh!

Lovely interface. No idea how it goes with Caxton or Freeway, but a
very nice interface to help you choose the faces you want to use.

Works a treat with FW no need for the Caxton action

Download the font and install on your Mac- Create new font set in FW - add the Google supplied code in the head of your FW page and that’s it.

Some of the fonts renders poorly in IE. Best check them first on a PC before you decide which one to use.

Marcel,

Must one add to the head of each FW page on which the Google code is used (suggesting the Master page), or can it be applied to a folder?

The Caxton Action is only really necessary for organising font sets that you have downloaded and intend to host on your own server. With online resources such as this, you’ll be fine as long as you can install a local copy of the font into your Font folder and set up as a font set to maintain the WYSIWYG functionality in Freeway.

It’s really cool to see more and more websites using embedded fonts. Makes a change from the usual Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, Times and (coff) Comic Sans.

Julie you can add it at either After or Before

Just add the code for every font you want to use.

Lots of info here - http://code.google.com/apis/webfonts/docs/getting_started.html

“Just add the code for every font you want to use.”

I picked 4 fonts and Google generated this code:

Does this fit within Helveticus’ remit? Will this code do the job for all 4 fonts?

And presumably I just create Styles as usual?

Helveticus, I tried your workaround, but possibly I miss something. In the FW artwork, I can nicly see the new font in a html item, but not in the browser online.

What I did:

  1. New font “Lobster” installed at Mac
  2. New fontset in FW with “Lobster”
  3. Code from Google: After in the markup dialog:

I wonder what went wrong?
Any help is welcome!

Sonjanna, your Google code looks funky especially the &v2 after Lobster

try this instead

<link href='http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Lobster' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>

Thanks Marcel! I have the code from Google itself ;).
Tried yours, but did not work either.
The error must be somewhere else.

Anything special to think of somewhere else?

Hi,

the mistake is probably in how you build your Font-Set. within Freeway:

Name: Lobster
alternative Fonts: cursive

The code itself looks fine.

That should do the game:

Thanks Thomas! I changed that, but now “Lobster” looks like “Apple Chancery” :wink: at your page too by the way - in FF, Opera, Safari. At least in my browsers. Hard to say where exactly the font problem lays …

Yes your font/styles setup was wrong in your FW file. I have just emailed you a sample FW page

Thank you very much Marcel. It was hard to detect the error, but now it works - as well as with other webfonts.
One should be carful by naming fontsets and their alternatives. I had installed Lobster.ttf (from Google) and Lobster 1.4.otf (from the fontdesigner). Somehow I mixed them up.

Btw, informations about browser and mobile device support of the webfonts can be found here: http://code.google.com/intl/de-DE/apis/webfonts/faq.html#Browsers_Supported

All the best!
