With great power may come great illegibility
« on: July 21, 2010, 10:00:00 AM »
So. For those of you who design websites & are sick of messing about with sIFR to control typography, here's an article about Google's (who else) font API: http://www.htmlgoodies.com/beyond/css/article.php/3894041 . The font directory is here: http://code.google.com/webfonts

It's still in beta & there are only 18 to choose from, but it's a good start. Now if they could just figure a way to remotely disable Comic Sans.

Let me know how you make out with it. I've started monkeying with it, but I'm eager to see how other people use it in the wild.
