web standards

Now it’s Mozilla’s turn…

Mozilla doesn’t support embeded fonts. You can make your site really cool by using fonts beyond the normal handful commonly available. You have to “embed” them in the page’s stylesheet. Trouble is, Mozilla won’t show those fonts. It uses the specified alternative, or the default if none is given.

I wanted to make a pretty page with custom fonts… Maybe someday when standards are supported.

    I love the redesign with the patterns and colors.. great stuff.

    I don’t think that embedded fonts is a standard. Oh wait.. I’m looking it up on W3c.org… Here’s some stuff on it with CSS2: http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-CSS2/fonts.html#font-selection. But, I’m not sure that either browser supports that method. I’ve never played with it myself, so I don’t really know. There’s a comparison chart of CSS2 specs on: http://www.designdetector.com/articles/results.html, but they don’t mention section 15.3 of the CSS2 spec.

    I’ve tested it now - it works in IE6 at this point. It doesn’t work in Mozilla. The documents I read at W3C.org look like it’s part of the CSS2 standard. We’ll just have to wait and see.
