The Potential of Web Typography

Firefox 3.5 with support for webfonts is out. This demo page by Ian Lynam & Craig Mod shows how commercial webfonts can enrich a website. The demo page uses subsetted versions of fonts from the Dutch foundry Underware and “is intended to show what will be possible once foundries revise their EULAs allowing for high-quality professional level fonts to be referenced in CSS“.

    Wow, this is amazing, I had no idea Underwear’s typefaces are @font-face friendly. The page looks amazing!

    Mind that this is a special demo build in cooperation with Underware. You currently cannot use your Underware fonts in this way.

    überall wenn ich ich die bello im einsatz als webfont sehe schneidet der FF3.5 die unterlängen ab. woran liegts?

    Wahrscheinlich an der ungünstigen Kombination Windows-Font-Rendering, Firefox + Bello. Am Mac (Safari oder Firefox) sieht alles hervorragend aus. Hab’s trotzdem erstmal wieder deaktiviert – ist unter Windows ja wirklich unzumutbar. :-(
