Home Forums CSS webfonts vs websafe fonts and alternatives Re: webfonts vs websafe fonts and alternatives


And a random thought to keep in mind – kerning is important. Almost all fonts will look rather unfinished at display size… until letter spacing is adjusted just right. That’s the big “secret” of typesetting hah. Css can sorta kern but not really. Use images so you can granular adjust big gun typesets or logos. Save the css for last resort sub-focal kern/shadow, like if h1 is getting dominated by content, can’t be bigger, and needs a bit more eye pull. Theres a massive difference in readability/pull between naked h1 and optimized h1. Use with care :)
