View Full Version : Are custom fonts worth it at the moment?

I want to use custom fonts on my site but ive had lots of trouble with them before. At the moment is it worth it, like compatibility wise, or do not many browsers support it yet.

Web fonts are supported by all major browsers.

FontSquirrel (http://www.fontsquirrel.com/fontface) will hand you the code on a silver platter.

I would say no.

But if you really want to use them, put them in descending order in the css.

font-family: "Super Spaceship", "Ultimate Star Wars", sans-serif;

That way it will first try to load the Super Spaceship font. If that's not available it will try to load the Ultimate Star Wars font. If that's not available it will load a sans-serif font (which all but the most unusual computers on the planet will have).
