CSS


Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is a style sheet language used to describe the look and formatting of a document written in a markup language.

When using Elementar in a browser, you can specify the CSS rule to ensure that the fonts are displayed without aliasing:body { -webkit-font-smoothing: antialiased; }
Because web browsers do not support OpenType layout features, we built a system that generates font files on the fly and can apply OpenType features directly to the file. This enables us to support true small caps as well as various styles of numerals.
Yes you can. Our CSS is designed to recognise local fonts, and if the given font is installed locally it is used first. In that case the webfonts are not used, so no bandwidth is consumed.
The Print & Web Licence of our OpenType fonts permits you to download the font files and use them in your favourite print applications. When you want to use them on a website, log in to your account to generate a block of CSS code for your webpage.
Unfortunately, web browsers do not support OpenType layout features (yet). But the Typotheque webfont system generates font files on the fly, and can apply OpenType features directly to the file in the process. This enables us to support true small caps as well as various styles of numerals.
Instead of providing a font file directly to clients, we provide a block of dynamically-generated CSS code for use on the client’s site. The actual font file is hosted on our secure servers, and its URL is not visible to the end user.
Yes, simply select the Self-hosted Webfont option.
We wrote a simple tutorial on how to implement the CSS code generated by the Web Font Service.
sIFR is a workaround which uses Javascript, Flash and CSS to replace the given text with small Flash files. The lengthy processing times involved make it unsuitable for longer texts. Cufón, on the other hand is a Javascript package that draws type outlines.
Owners of Typotheque font licences can create embeddable fonts via their Typotheque accounts. Simply enter the domains where the font will be used and the languages to be supported, and our system instantly generates a short block of CSS code.
