Web II: @fontface

When you are making a website, sometimes you just want to use your own fonts. Fonts that find the style of the webpage. Now you can by using @fontface. @fontface allows you to use a font that is available on the web. The only thing with @font have is that not all web browsers support it. This is still a new idea, also there is still licensing issues that are working out. THere is another way of using fonts from the web without licensing issues in the way. In the book there is an example of a website called typekit. This site allows you to embed fonts on your webpage. Another example of this kind of website is google fonts. this website allows you to embed fonts in your webpage.there are many fonts to choose from so you can pick fonts for your body and headlines. This website has no licensing problems with doing this. By using google fonts or typekit it allows you to style your website how you want and it works with all web browsers. Typekit and google also provides back up fonts so that if the font you want doesn’t shoe up on the particular computer that it will have another that is similar. This helps ensure that you do not mess up the look and feel of the website.
