cufón

Hey guys, simple straight to the point question.
Is there a way to tell what font a site may be using, when they embed their font using the Cufon Javascript Library?

Hope so, this would help a lot.

Take care folks.

Salam,

I want to use arabic font in my web. I used cufon javascript to embed it. It has rendered the fonts but not showing properly. Font can be downloaded from here

Seeking some help if you can

Have a nice weekend.

Would like to get some professional opinions on Cufón. Specifically, I'm wondering if you see it in a similar light as WOFF. IE: It is a web-only format and can't be installed on a desktop machine. I'm starting to see some designers offering Cufón support in their pro licenses.

So, would you equate the two to be similar? Can you see any downside to Cufón from an IP perspective?

The only downside I can see, is that 1) It is a text format and therefore easy to edit out domain links. 2) It is easily downloaded and installed on your own website. But it is impossible (from what I can tell) to turn back into an OTF. I can already turn a WOFF back into an OTF.

Why or why don't you support Cufón?

I've seen CSS tricks being used to create offset layered headlines, usually for a drop shadow. Has anyone seen an example of embedded web fonts being used with multi-layered fonts to create a multicolored effect?

Hi,

is anywhere a table showing which foundry supports and allows which webfont technology? I couldn't really find anything close to what I mean, so I put together quickly this draft: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Pepa007/Foundries_allowing_web_fonts

Is there something like this already? Or should I publish it and kindly ask you to help me with adding more foundries?

Thank you

Josef
