How to Display Non-Web Fonts Without Using Flash

Ever encountered the problem that your client wanted the corporate font which was not a web-compliant font? Well, that’s over. With Cufon you can easily and fast render any given font and use it as real text on your website.

Cufon takes a True Type Font (.ttf) and generates a Javascript which contains all vector information. You just include the Javascript and the font will be used in the specified site elements.

Of course, a True Type Font is often proprietory, so you’ll have to buy that. But if you do a website for a corporation, they mostly own the font anyway. And Cufon is free. You may donate, and please do so, because it’s a great innovation.
