Using Google Fonts

Image for Using Google Fonts

You may have noticed the new layout.


Yes all done with HTML5 and liberal doses of CSS3. Thanks to PIE, it (more or less) works OK in Internet Explorer.

I have something else to mention; I am using Google Fonts. I have opted for the very nice, 'Cantarell', designed by Dave Crossland.


How does it work then?

It really is very easy, and although I could explain, you can easily explore for yourself over at Google WebFonts and choose something nice for yourself.

I do have a problem though. You will see from the 2 images posted here (click to enlarge), that the font looks good in Safari, but in Internet EXplorer 8 on Windows 7, there is a tendency for some break up. I provide these 2 images as a comparison.

Let me know if you can find a way round this problem, otherwise, I may be resorting to a more friendly solution for IE.
