[Pro] None system fonts on websites

Hi all, I’m just about to start my first responsive site using Backdraft (thanks Caleb), so expect a few more questions to follow - exciting eh!

My immediate problem is that the client has a couple of typefaces that she’d like to use throughout the site and I haven’t a clue how to force these characters. I realise there’s the Caxton action and GoogleFonts, but again, wouldn’t know how to implement either.

Does anyone out there have a preference for which works the best, or ease of use, or indeed any other web font type thingy solution?

Many thanks
Trev

In my humble opinion, Caxton is the easiest to use. It’s pretty straightforward:

  • create a webkit of the font at FontSquirrel.com
  • within Freeway, insert the action somewhere outside the page
  • select the .css-file that came with the webkit
  • create a font set named after the web font (including the ’ ‘)
  • apply the web font to the styles.

It’s thàt easy.

Richard, Erik, thanks to you both for pointing me in the right direction.

I had a go at both and ended up going Ernie’s GoogleFonts direction - seems to work a treat.
