FF Subsetter - Optimize your Web FontFont

by 2 others
Web FontFonts are built to serve most people’s needs, and often contain a huge number of glyphs. Yet most of the time you’ll only need a few of them! By dropping what you don’t need, you can greatly reduce the font file size to optimize bandwidth usage, make your websites faster, and reduce high-traffic costs.

If you are using @font-face for your main site, and for your iframe, then you may find that the font-face is removed and replaced with arial or helvetica when the iframe is removed from the page. This is a common effect of modal iframe lightbox systems, like shadowbox or thickbox.

Giving Challenged @font-face Fonts The Italics Makeover

See the nice italicized text in the heading of this article? It is not so obvious to style as you may think. There are many great free and commercial fonts out there that allow @font-face embedding. Unfortunately, not all of them have an italics variant for one reason or another. For example, the font I use for my blogs headlines, Graublau Sans Web, does not have a true italics variant included with it, while the font I use for the blog’s copy, Droid Sans, does. When a font doesn’t have an italics variant, and you try to italicize it in a web-page using i and em tags, the results depend on the browser you are using:

* Safari, Chrome and Opera will render the font normally without italicizing it.

* Internet Explorer and Firefox will attempt to italicize the font, but Internet Explorer will slant the font at a 20° angle while Firefox implements a 10° slant.

Quick Tip: Tuning Condensed Fonts with WebFont Loader « The Typekit Blog

In general, type sizes run a little bigger with condensed fonts; they take up less horizontal space so we tend to set them at larger sizes than we would a more normal font. But since there isn’t a condensed font among system fonts, we don’t have a comparable fallback option for browsers that don’t support @font-face, leaving us with oversized system fonts.
