If you’re visiting this site on any modern browser (other than iPhone/iPad/Android), you’ve probably noticed the custom fonts I’ve used for the headers and body. This is all thanks to Google’s new open-source font library.
It’s so good to see a competitor to typekit, especially a free open-source option that anyone can use. Now, getting set up to use these new fonts on any website is relatively easy if you’re familiar with using Google’s AJAX Libs (which I recommend for your jQuery and swfObject hosting needs), but it’s even easier if you’re running Wordpress site.
The Wordpress Google Fonts Plugin worked great for me when setting up this site. You basically just install it and tell the plugin which styles you want to override with Google Fonts. There were some minor gotchas around my specific template and specific styles, but nothing that I couldn’t get around by modifying the styles.css.
