It seems that the person who originally discovered this had their post removed.

Hm, I don’t like the sound of that. Someone knew the answer and then their post vanished?? Screws up the thread.

Yes, I agree. I like Cufon tool.

It is not needed to install any fonts on computer.

Cufon transform any font file (e.g. TTF) into JavaScript (.JS), so you can simply include it into HTML pages.

Not true. Tools like Cufon, sIFR and typekit do not need you to have the font installed on your computer. That is their whole reason for existence.

You may have two Problem
This font is not Available in your control Panel. or It may beYour local computer Resolution Problem.

Still not sure what the issue is. On my computer, it’s coming up as perfectly ordinary Calibri, although it looks as though he has specified another font that I don’t have.

thanks for you reply. the article’s title on the home page. eg:“What is this all about?”

You can’t just re-use somebody else’s TypeKit code and get the same fonts. You need to set up your own TypeKit account and use code specific to your site.

Most web font services work this way, to avoid having people leach other people’s bandwidth; it’s equally true of Extensis WebINK, my web font service:



I believe this was already established.

EDIT: Whoops! Never mind. It seems that the person who originally discovered this had their post removed.

I seemed to be seeing Verdana.
So I viewed source. They are using Typekit, a competitor of Cufon.

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
<script type="text/javascript">try{Typekit.load();}catch(e){}</script>

Unlike CSS3’s @font-face, this does need JS on to work.

Hm, template based on Movable Type, which is written in Perl : )

Okay, so I realize I am a bit late to the party. But I thought I’d try and help anyway. The font is called Croquette. It doesn’t look like it is free so you would have to purchase it to download it and use it in your own projects (but I only did a very brief Google search so I could be wrong). Obviously, this is not a web-safe font. The designers could have used [URL=“”]the new CSS 3 font-face thingy (not sure what to call it - its not exactly a property), but that is unlikely. Instead, they probably used a tool like [URL=“”]Cufon which uses some Javascript and SVG magic (I really do not know how it works) to display virtually any font you wish (as long as you have the font file and the rights to use the font on the web). Whatever, the designer decided to use, it is very finicky. Sometimes the font loads, other times it doesn’t. And it seems Stevie D isn’t seeing it at all.

Anyway, I hope I have been of assistance.

You mean, that you have a font called; coquette-1 or coquette-2 ? As that is what has been suggested via the CSS; if not then obviously it won’t match, in either case the CSS looks faulty.

You’ll need to be more specific about what “font effect” you’re talking about…
