    Very cool. I actually just canceled my Typekit account as I wasn’t really utilizing it. Might check this out once I get some spare time to actually get my sites up and running.

    This is the best part for $99:

    I think their claim that webfonts help with search ranking is a bit exaggerated.

    > Machines can read webfonts, too, and the more of your site a search engine can see, the better.

    Other than that… this seems something big (seen a lot of Tweets), why?

    @CrocoDillon Their claim is that many people still use images in replace of text. But I agree with you. That’s what `alt` was for, right?

    > this seems something big (seen a lot of Tweets), why?

    We’ve been waiting for them for years. I think their beta webfonts (which H&FJ selected people for) that Dan Cederholm, Chris Coyier, Jessica Hische and some others have been using, came out just over a year ago. So it’s been a long anticipation to allow everyone to use their fonts on the web. And these are well known and award winning typefaces we’re talking about. Gotham being one of the biggest.

    Ah okay, I like that you can share your plan across all your domains.

    Yeah, `alt` or original text hidden with CSS, but I see their point now.

    I can’t seem to get the HFJ fonts to work with my WordPress install. I’ve got them working my main site, no problem, but not in WordPress! I’ve tried putting the the CSS key in the header.php of my theme, and tried a functions.php in the theme folder. I’m using a child theme, and tried adding a functions.php in that folder, but nothing seems to work.

    I contacted HFJ, but they just reiterate that the code must be placed in the head. Hmmm…

    Any ideas, anyone?

    Link?

    I got it working now; not sure how. It might just be that I had cache issues, in spite of reloading repeatedly.

    Thanks for the reply.

    What browser?

    Chrome

    Hmm.. looks okay on Chrome and Chrome Canary on my Mac…haven’t tried on a PC yet. (I had taken down the attempt until I saw your response.)

    There’s an error 403 on the CSS file for H&FJ webfonts.

    Thanks for that.. I’ll scratch my head awhile to see why that might be.
