FOUT (Flash of Unstyled Text)

  • # October 4, 2012 at 10:11 am

    Why is it that I am seeing such a huge difference in the flash of unstlyed text on all of my sites using typekit but on sites like this one (css-tricks) there does not seem to be any text jumping?

    I have tried hiding the text until its finished loading the fonts but that doesnt seem to be a great solution. They also don’t seem to be doing that here.

    example site for reference…

    @markus8585 I’m not seeing any FOUT issues.

    Edit: I just noticed that was an example. Try using the asynchronous embed code shown here.
