Typotheque

Ross Milne

Hi Typophile,

After trying out TypeKit last year and deciding that it was a bit too bleeding-edge to be of use to me at that time, I've jumped back in with another investigation of the now numerous webfont vendors and services available online. I've checked out FontDeck, Typotheque, and WebType. So far I've been avoiding TypeKit because I prefer a not-javascript-dependant solution.

A major frustration for me is the seeming lack of information regarding which typefaces in a given library are technically suited to rendering small type across all browser platforms. I've basically been surfing these websites in IE6 with cleartype disabled (painful!) to get an idea of the worst-case-scenario for each typeface.
