How could I have overlooked this post? How could I have been so blind? :eek:
As you can tell from the above lament, I now wish I had started with this @font-face method and left typeface.js and cufon, its cousin, alone.
For the benefit of others, here is what I experienced with typeface:
- Questionable rendering speed on IE.
- Sketchy text selectability.
- No :hover color function.
In addition to some of these problems, Cufon suffers from:
@font-face, on the other hand, with Font Squirrel's generator, rocks. The only thing I would change is to borrow a handy feature from typeface and cufon's font converters: The ability to eliminate unnecessary characters, such as the Cyrillic Alphabet, from the font for smaller file sizes. As it is, Font Squirrel's files are still pretty hefty.
Thanks for pointing me in the right direction, logic_earth, even though it took me a few days to see it.
