Embed font family using CSS3 – cross browser compatible

categories:CSS3, Development

Sometimes you’ll come across that client that insists on having that non internet friendly font used on their website. Luckily by using CSS3 you can now embed the font required.

In the below code i have embeded the font family Dartangon. Simply copy the TrueType font (.ttf) file and the OpenType (.eot) font file into the same directory as the stylesheet, then refference to it like this:

@font-face {
 font-family: DartangnonITC;
 src: url("DartangnonITC-Regular.eot") /* EOT file for IE */

@font-face {
   font-family: DartangnonITC;
   src: url("DartangnonITC-Regular.ttf");

The top code section handle IE support, the bottom covers most other browsers. All you need to do now is specify where the font should show. Below i have added it to a class called “special”.

/* Dartangnon font family styling */
.special {font-family:DartangnonITC; }

Hope this helps. Nathaniel
