The top 10 open source web fonts Micah Rich, co-founder of The League of Moveable Type, rounds up the best open source fonts for web design and explains how you can contribute. He looks at the precursors to the @font-face revolution, Google Web Fonts and fonts from the League. The revolution is underway. This time two years ago, finding fonts that were allowed to be used online was difficult to say the least, but the mere utterance of the word "open source" was nearly a felony to type designers everywhere. Today we have individuals standing up, creative typographers conquering new ground, foundries dedicated to the movement, and not only acceptance, but widespread usage from big-name companies to amateurs just messing around. I'm here to give you a tour of not only the best open source fonts available, but how you can get started contributing, and what my vision is for where it's going.

Font guide for webmasters undefined Until font downloading technology is perfected, Web designers must normally restrict themselves to fonts that are available on most users’ computer systems. So which fonts are installed on everyone’s computers? Your best bets are the ones that come with the Internet Explorer (MSIE) browser and the Windows and Macintosh operating systems. For the last few years, the MSIE fonts have been installed on every new Windows and Macintosh PC, so they are your best “cross-platform” bet.

As a designer, typography is a very important aspect to my work. Now as far as print design, implementing any form of type isn’t a problem, but when it comes to the web then there’s only a certain amount of fonts you can use, right? WRONG.

We’ve been following developments in web browsers very closely, looking for new and smarter ways to build stuff. Last fall, we started seeing renewed interest in linking to fonts via Cascading Stylesheets. Introducing Typekit

This is a genuine Bastarda, written at Prague in the year 1400, at the chancery of one Wenzlaw who was king of Bohemia and Roman king. His elixir of life was booze, his first occupation fighting off a brother who tried and retried to have him dethroned for insanity, his favourite pastime having people drowned in the Moldava, and his only claim at immortality causing thereby the death of a court clerk called John of Pomuk, who afterwards became renowned as a saint.

I got my information on King Wenzlaw, a.k.a Václav, a.k.a Wenceslas, a.k.a Wenzel, from Radio Prague's online Czech history, which was a rather amusing read. Was, indeed, for, it seems, those pages are gone now. Pia Frauss -- Fonts: WirWenzlaw
