Google Web Fonts

Google has created Google web fonts with over 240 web fonts. This gives Web Designers and Developers like my self a wide range of creative for typography on web sites. Before there where only a handful of web safe fonts that we where allowed to use. When I say allowed to use I mean, these are fonts that are standard on users computers. If we where to use a font that that certain user did not have on their machine then the typography would not render correctly on the web site. Now with Google we have over 200 fonts to choose from and the fonts will render correctly on the web site.

Here is how it is done.

<html>
  <head>
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine">
    <style>
      body {
        font-family: 'Tangerine', serif;
        font-size: 48px;
      }
    </style>
  </head>
  <body>
    <h1>Making the Web Beautiful!</h1>
  </body>
</html>

That is it! When the user visits the web site the font is used from Google and they will be able to see the beauty of typography on the web!

It will be very useful for Designers and Developers
