Web typography has come a long way in the past 18 months. Cufón has dethroned sIFR, @font-face browser support has closed in on 95% of all users, new font formats of CWT and WOFF were discussed and implemented, and webfont services like Typekit have made the difficult easy. Challenges still remain, but our opportunities for making the web beautiful are increasing rapidly.

Discover the best practices for using custom typography with CSS3 @font-face in your web work. Learn the best path for cross-browser compatibility, the licensing landscape, the inconvenient rendering issues, and strategies to employ to make sure your design will look rock solid.
