The earlier videos in this chapter covered the, until recently,…standard approach of using Web- Safe fonts that are common to the…various computer platforms.…That's all changed with the introduction and rapid proliferation of web fonts…led by full-throated Browser support for a CSS3 feature.…The latest browsers now make it possible for web pages to incorporate fonts that…are not on the site visitor's machine, but rather linked and quickly downloaded.…These web fonts depend on a CSS3 declaration known as @font-face.…
You can see some example @font-face code here.…The @font-face declaration is now supported in Firefox 3.5 and higher,…Safari 3.2 and higher, Opera 10.1 and higher, Google Chrome 5 and up, and…Internet Explorer 9 and on.…The other factor driving adoption of this technology is the recent turnaround of…the leading font foundries to license their fonts.…Some of the leading resources for web fonts include Typekit, Fonts.com, and FontShop.…
