Google Webfonts : Too damn cool!

Google Webfonts : Too damn cool!

Date: 10-19-2011
Adding custom fonts to you site is a snap these days... if you have a copy of the font, you can use the @font-face selector like this:

@font-face {  
  font-family: yourFontName ;  
  src: url( /location/of/font/FontFileName.ttf ) format("truetype");  
/* Then use it like you would any other font */  
.yourFontName { font-family: yourFontName , verdana, helvetica, sans-serif;  

OR... if you want to use fonts you don't have locally, try Google Web Fonts.  You can embed the fonts with Google cool online web fonts library... hundreds of free available fonts...   you literally:

1. Choose some fonts
2. Google gives you a simple line of code, such as  ( @import url(; ) to add to your HTML to import the fonts
3. Start using the fonts in your CSS.  It's awesome.

This is so cool.. There are over 250 fonts available at Google that you can import into your CSS in seconds. Using a font other than Arial, Times, etc etc is so nice.
