    @font-face

    im a bit confused about this, i thought i can just link a page to a website in css but any sites i visit are asking to download the font.

    can anyone shed a light on this? i looked into it abit and saw that to use custom fonts i had to download it and save it to the font folder on my computer??

    I thought Font Face was obsolete now, have you tried Google Fonts instead?

    for that you just add in a line of code to the CSS like you said.

    It's not only not obsolete, but it's faster than using a Google font.

    Yes, you have to download the font, and if you want it to be cross-browser compatible you have to create several variants. Handpicked free fonts for graphic designers with commercial-use licenses. | Font Squirrel has a tool for that, though, and it'll even generate the CSS for you.

    Looks like your right, Im sure last time I went on it,a good few years ago it said that they were no longer supporting it and it would be phased out but doesnt say anything like that now.

    Actually, if you look at the code contained with the Google Fonts CSS, you'll see it uses @font-face. Just remembered that.

    Yeah I seem to remember that it was saying that Google had taken control of the project. Id just assumed they'd scrap the old site but obviously not
