In my current project, I am working with an imported serif font that inherently has an italic skew to it. I would like to set the fallback font to georgia, but I would like to apply the italic version of Georgia as the fallback, rather than it’s normal display.
Is there any way I can apply Italics to just one of my fallbacks? or is there a way I can call upon the italic display of Georgia within the css?
(I wish I could be as helpful on the forums as most of you seem to be, but I am still pretty new to all this!)November 26, 2012 at 8:40 am #115495jmcParticipant
I am using a font from lost type called [pigeon](http://www.losttype.com/font/?name=pigeon “”). The font itself, to me at least, looks to be inherently italicized. needless to say, it does bear a similarity to italic Georgia, hence why I would like to set that as the fall back.November 26, 2012 at 9:38 am #115501
I can’t see any way of doing this (other than using a Georgia Italic font).
I suppose it **might** be possible to do something with JS though.November 26, 2012 at 10:01 am #115503
Yeah…but that’s not the issue..or is it?
If his web served font isn’t loaded (for whatever reason..perhaps the font-repository is down) then he want’s an italic fallback that’s available locallyNovember 26, 2012 at 10:02 am #115504
Actually it doesn’t resemble Georgia that well.
There is a way to do what you’re asking with CSS but I can’t find the post in the forum.November 26, 2012 at 10:17 am #115508November 26, 2012 at 10:19 am #115510
Yeah…but my point was (& perhaps I’m missing something) is that Georgia Italic would have to be installed…and (happy to be wrong) but that’s not a standard font..or is it?
Or would it take a standard Georgia and italicize it?November 26, 2012 at 10:19 am #115511
Update: On my computer it’s “Georgia Italic” (with spaces).
@Pauly_D Georgia has italics and it is on both Windows and Mac.November 26, 2012 at 10:24 am #115513
On my standard install W7 machine…I only have Georgia and not GI is not listed as a ‘separate’ font.
However, of course, the trick would be to specific a ‘standard’ italic font that resembles the chosen font as closely as possible.
Solved…ish. :)November 26, 2012 at 10:27 am #115515November 26, 2012 at 10:30 am #115517
So it does….the things you learn everyday.

@alexmccabe No. You need to use the following CSS for it to work
font-family: “GeorgiaItalic”, “Georgia Italic”;

@alexmccabe Not for me it doesn’t. However, if you set the font-style to normal, it does. You could probably just remove it altogetherNovember 26, 2012 at 10:43 am #115524
