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?# July 1, 2013 at 5:55 pm
@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?

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.

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?
