Cufón

Friday, June 11th, 2010

I recently discovered Cufón a text replacement service that swaps out your normal HTML characters and replaces them with whatever custom font you choose (providing the license permits it). It is essentially an alternative to using sIFR which uses flash to replace the characters but can be a pain to set up and often has big delays when pages load creating a rather nasty jumping effect. Cufón I have to say was amazingly simple to use, took only a few minutes to set up and works a treat.  I highly recommend it to anyone else frustrated with being limited to web-safe fonts but reluctant to use lots of images on their site.
