October 2010 Meeting Report:
Google Fonts

At our October meeting, we finished up on the @fonts selector by doing a live demonstration of how to incorporate a font into your page and then serve the font to your reader. We highlighted Font Squirrel, a site that is a source for fonts in multiple formats plus the style sheets to load the fonts into your pages.

We then looked at Google Fonts, a new technique for serving up fonts. Google Labs has an introduction to this technology at Google Font API. Another good introduction is A Guide to Google Font API at Six Revisions. To see the fonts available, go to the Google Font Directory.

FontSquirrel is a pretty cool resource! I want to use some of those fonts in place of my typical Arial, Helvetica, Sans-Serif lineup. Good stuff - thanks!
