The project is still in experimental phase, but seems excitingly promising.
Whenever designing or developing a website, you are inevitably tied to the following fonts:
- Comic Sans MS
- Times New Roman
- Trebuchet MS
There are a couple of others, but that is pretty much the safe list. After a while, websites become repetitive as everyone is using the same group of fonts for text (while relying on images for the special ones). Now, with the typeface project, the future looks bright.
Not only that, but the website actually offers a conversion tool that allows you to upload a font for it to be rendered in your website. The project in general is still requiring some work before it’s ready for wide deployment, but as always, open source projects can’t go wrong.
