Join James Williamson for an in-depth discussion in this video Enabling Typekit on your site, part of Up and Running with Typekit.
- Using Typekit is extremely easy…but there's more to it than just…choosing some fonts and publishing your kit.…In this movie I want to show you…what you'll need to do to your site…in order to enable Typekit on it.…You can see I have my project page loaded…but currently the fonts aren't displaying.…I'm seeing the fallback fonts,…which is not what I want to see.…Now, if I go back to my kit,…I can see that I've got both fonts…that I would need inside my kit,…maybe it's not published,…so I'm going to publish it.…It will take a second to update…and if I go back to my project page and refresh,…nothing, it still don't render.…
The reason for that is, within the html of the page,…I haven't enabled Typekit's font loading.…If I open up the Index.htm…from the 03_04 exercise files folder…inside my code editor,…I can see that around line 10…of the head of the document,…I have a little html comment that says…"typekit embed code goes here".…This is what's currently live online.…There's no embed code live on the page…and that means there's nothing to tell the browser…
