Join Joseph Lowery for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with web fonts, part of Dreamweaver CC and WordPress 3.8: Core Concepts.
…The emergence of web fonts is one of the…most far-reaching innovations in web design in recent years.…Finally, designers are freed from the strangle hold of just using system fonts.…The general Roux site makes use of several web fonts for both headings and body copy.…So we'll want our blog to follow suit.…In this lesson, I'm going to show you two techniques.…One is a basic technique…you can use with any web font you can download.…While the other uses the Adobe Edge web fonts built into DreamWeaver CC.…
Both methods are pretty straight forward but…the latter involves a little code manipulation.…Luckily this design uses two different web fonts, so we can demo both.…We'll do the more general technique first. To start, we need to copy some assets.…So…I'm going to switch over to Finder.…And from the exercise file expand chapter five 05_03.…You'll see an underscore fonts folder there.…I'm going to copy that one and then go to my site root.…
Roux Academy blog > wp-content > themes > Roux.…And paste in my copied fonts folder.…

Author update on April 4, 2014:
WordPress 3.8.2 is now available from wordpress.org. The update focuses on security issues and should not impact this course in any way. A much bigger release, 3.9, is currently a release candidate and will likely go live later in April. I'm currently evaluating what impact v3.9 will have on this course.
