Getting nice fonts embedded in Blogger

Recently I have been hearing and reading a lot about typekit. So, I decided to find out how it can be useful to me. It basically is about getting nice fonts across browsers. It is a web service that provides font. The idea is really cool.

So I decided to try it out. They offer 25000 page-views per month and two fonts per site. I don't like either of these restrictions, especially the second one. So, I looked for alternatives and I found Google Web Fonts.

Using Google web fonts is very easy. You just need to select a font and then click on the Use this font tab and you have the instructions about how you can use it in your web page.

Font-face backed out because Google entered this market. However, you still have other alternatives like WebINK.

Nowadays Every major browser is about to support the ability to link to a font. That means you can write a bit of CSS, include a URL to a font file, and have your page display with the typography you expect.
