    What do I do about https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=PT+Sans:regular,bold

    I have purchased a template design and one of the CSS stylesheets is this: https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?fam...s:regular,bold

    Removing it makes some browsers display a not so attractive font.

    Is there a way of removing the https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?fam...s:regular,bold and using CSS in my own stylesheet instead?

    I'm trying to reduce the number of requests my site makes.

    Also, how likely is it that the link won;t be around in a few years? If you visit the link it then links again to 'user content' or something. It just seems so much better to have control myself of my styles.

    Google is likely to be around for a while yet.

    That said, you could host the font on your own website and serve it that way if you like. You can get the necessary code from FontSquirrel. I find FontSquirrel a lot more reliable that Google Fonts.
