@font-face support?

I thought I’d try out what font-face support is like now, by using Font Squirrel’s Dustismo GPL font ‘it just works’ package. Last time I worked with it, I reverted back to using a image to get the top-left ‘fosiki’ logo  – I’ll leave that for now, because the font sizes and spacing is a bit off.

All that to get a web site that looks ‘similar’ to my business card.

Its running live here on this blog – and it looks to me like it works!

IE6 looks a bit haggard, but then how old is it?

Next up I’ll have to update my fosiki Foswiki theme – good to see this technology actually works this time – I’ve tried it out since IE5.5 got some ‘sortof support’ :}

All I had to do was upload the @font-face package built by Font Squirrel, add a single css file containing the font-face definitions, and update my stylesheet to use that named font.
