Type Rendering Mix

Thu, 09/04/2014 - 15:14 -- rprice

Using Type Rendering Mix you can instead decrease the font weight for browsers that use Core Text to render text. By only applying changes when Core Text is used you will achieve a more consistent rendering while preserving the accuracy of sub-pixel antialiasing. .tr-coretext { font-weight: 100; } Another use case for Type Rendering Mix is to disable web fonts when no antialiasing is applied. In the following example we fall back on “Verdana”, one of the core web fonts that is known to render well when antialiasing is disabled.

The top 10 open source web fonts | Feature | .net magazine

Thu, 06/07/2012 - 08:36 -- rprice

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.
