    Google font wont render in Safari

    Hi all,

    Apologies if this is in the wrong forum, I could not really decide where to put it.
    Anyways, as from my critique I received in the website critique forum yesterday, to do with my use of lucida handwriting, I found a nice font in google fonts, the only snag is it wont render in safari 5.0.5 or google chrome bizarley (Im running Windows 7 if thats any additional help to anyone),
    Is there anything I can do to make Safari and Chrome render the font, or should I just go for another font entirely ? (The font does render in opera/firefox and IE 9)
    My domain is BFdesigns | Freelance Website Designer | Bromsgrove Worcestershire

    Thanks all

    On my Linux machine it renders fine in Chromium and Epiphany (WebKit-based) and Firefox.

    Thanks for the reply Technobear :-)

    Ive actually scraped google fonts now and found the same font on font squirrel so uploaded the font that way, and it now works across all browsers :-)

    That's interesting that the Google font didn't work for you, but the same font from FontSquirrel did. Wonder why?
