@font-face works locally but not live - licensing issue?
Any ideas on this one? I'm testing the site on my PC and @font-face is working in FF/Opera/Chrome/Safari using local files, but once I upoad it to the server it stops working.
I'm using a relative file path for the font-file (a .ttf in this case) so I don't think it's that (besides all the other assets are using relative paths and they're all fine).
Now, the file in question requires a license that I don't have
BUT! I am just using it to test things out until I find a suitable free alternative, I promise!
So, I tested it using an 'unsuitable' free alternative - literally just changing the filename in the CSS - and it works first time.
Does this mean that there's some security measure being implemented to prevent misuse of unlicensed files? Please don't scorn me for this, I'm still learning and just found it interesting!
