Use BBT Font on your Blogs - Press Release

javascript's picture

New standard being installed on latest browsers (some now and later),
for example Mozilla Firefox and IE allows for fonts to be easily used
on Blogs and Websites. This is the Web Open Font Format or WOFF see
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_Open_Font_Format

BBT font introduced in 2008 for altering the k/K letter shapes for
spirituality has been updated for this new standard. Now you can use
it on Blogs with easy code snippet called @font-face and some changes
to the Blog CSS stylesheet.

This is a blog using the BBT font as an example: http://BBTfont.blogspot.com

Use the Webfont Loader to prevent flashes of unformatted text! I could see the "K" shape for about 10 seconds on my old computer, and I'm already feeling a bit suicidal :D

I am pleased with the WOFF @font-face result compared with no font use at blogs and websites. I am not a techie thus if you feel it can be improved please contact me via this board's contact feature.

Please correct me if I am wrong: http://github.com/typekit/webfontloader seems to be tied to Google API w/ affiliates: Google Font Directory and Typekit (at this time) and thus not open for every font.

Google Font Directory has a monopolistic class tendency, not answering or mentioning their quality control issues and wanting to tyrant over spiritual font (race/religious (r/r) discrimination).

The "custom" module was designed explicitly for 3rd party use.
Here's a guide on how to use it to prevent FOUT: http://www.html5rocks.com/tutorials/webfonts/quick/#toc-fout

Someone else said the same.

They also said this about webfontloader, "my understanding is: it can work with any font whether it's hosted by Google, hosted by Typekit, or hosted yourself. In my experience - there are very few cases where the benefits of the webfontloader can be seen. These are primarily with larger fonts that haven't been cached or subset for a specific website or in an application where significant aspects of the typography can be changed base on an end-user font selection."

The other thing is that there is little information available about webfontloader: download/install, correct me if I am wrong.

Your site also says this 'caveat': "If JavaScript is disabled, the text will remain visible the whole time" and "Mozilla is looking to rectify this soon."

Thus are you saying if WOFF font is there and JavaScript is not accepted on the browser options, the font will not be seen and even if webfontloader is installed it could have to be uninstalled soon as browsers (Mozilla Firefox) that have the slight delay in displaying are going to be correcting the problem?
