[Pro] Fonts again I'm afraid

Guys,

I apologise for bringing this one up again as I had answers from dear Waltd and DeltaDave, but I’m not really understanding how to use html text and getting it to look exactly right on all modern browsers. I’m not too fussed about older browsers.

Can anyone please give me a step by step rundown on how to do this. Assume I have purchased the relevant web font. Please can you use simple language and when describing something, can you describe it as it is in Freeway. This is about the only think I’ve never really got to grips with - not Freeways fault obviously, but I would really like to understand it.

If you’re around Watford, Herts, I will gladly take you out for lunch at the very least!

Thanks all!

Mike

Well - I took opportunity to have a look into freeway’s manual and I have to say:

There is really great stuff in, so detailed and cool that it is worth to have a look in it.

I quick read the episode “Setting up Font-Sets” starting on page 202 and this would be Step 1 enables you to use a FONT in your Freeway-Document.

But this is only one side of the silver-medal. I remember that people recommended in total two ways going further down the road (have a look at the old post from 12th of january).

Depending on your personal choice

  1. Caxton

or

  1. Web Fonts Action

Then follow one of the both further instructions (as I said I’m on the Web Fonts action side).

The key in both actions is, that they bring a bunch of FONT-file formats) onto your host so a browser is probably able to pick them up and the chance increases, that the FONT is well displayed.

Up to my experience the combination ttf/eot is more than enough to display your FONT even in older browsers (and even IE).

So Mike - I’d say:

Stuff to start - whenever you stuck - come back.

I long thought to wrap this in a small nice screencast - but my english is so strangely limited …

Cheers

Thank you Thomas. I will re-look at the manual and try the web font route. One day, a web cast would be a good idea if anyone is prepared to do one!

Cheers
