webfonts


Webfonts are fonts embedded in websites and hosted on remote servers.

Applying OpenType features in webfonts is a two step process. Typotheque webfonts are always generated for a specific webfonts, based on the requested language coverage and by default the OpenType features are removed. First, we need to make sure that the characters needed for the OpenType substitution are available.
Typotheque font files remain in cache for one week, and CSS files are cached for 5 minutes. Practically speaking, this means that font data is loaded significantly faster, while changes in CSS can be still visible in 5 minutes.
Typotheque offers three different ways of using fonts on the web. Hosted Webfonts is the simplest option, ready to use in minutes. Clients receive CSS code for using fonts online, and manage their project via Typotheque online account.

When reaching the limit of free 500MB per month, you will receive an invoice at the end of the month for the bandwidth that go over the free limit. There is currently no way to pre-pay the bandwidth, you receive an invoice after exceeding the limit.
To make the webfont files as small as possible, we remove some inaccessible glyphs, and users can specify languages to support. Licensed fonts can use as many as 5 languages, trial licences work with a single language. You can also specify custom sets, and preview the glyph set directly.
The grades of Greta Text and Greta Text Narrow were designed for print environment and are not available for online use. Those are very subtle details in weight, and in our tests they proved impossible to distinguish.
We wrote a simple tutorial on how to implement the CSS code generated by the Web Font Service.
You can use our fonts to create websites, but since visitors may not have the same fonts installed, you will need to convert the fonts to images (GIF, JPG or PNG) so that the pages display as you intend. You can also use the fonts in Flash websites.
