* All font embeddability information at Licensed Software (typeface font) written as “Installable”, but there are still limits in it — please read the EULA (End User License Agreement) before install the Licensed Software.

Font embedding additional information:

  1. Restricted/No Embedding — This permission signals that the font or any portion of the font may not be embedded in any electronic document.
  2. Preview & Print — Fonts with an embedding permission of Preview & Print allows the font, either fully or as a subset, to be embedded in an electronic document solely for the purpose of viewing that document on screen and/or printing that document. While a font with a Preview & Print embedding permission (either through data in the font file or the font’s license agreement) may be embedded in an electronic document, the embedded font may not be used to further edit the document it is contained in or to edit or create other documents.
  3. Editable — Fonts with an editable embedding permission can be embedded in electronic documents, and the embedded font can then be used by the recipient of the electronic document to view, print and further edit or modify the text and structure of the document in which it is embedded. These changes or edits can then be saved in the original document.
  4. Installable — Fonts with an installable embedding permission may be embedded in electronic documents for viewing, printing and editing, with the added capability that they may be also be permanently installed on the computer that receives the electronic document containing the embedded font. This allows the font to be used to create and author new documents. It is intended that the recipient of a font set to installable embedding obtains all of the same rights as the person who originally licensed the font.

Installing Webfonts

Webfonts are supported by all major browser platforms but not all in the same way. There are currently four different font formats that must be included in order to target all browsers. This includes TTF, WOFF, EOT and SVG.

1. Upload your webfonts

You must upload your webfont kit to your website. They should be in or near the same directory as your CSS files.

2. Include the webfont stylesheet

A special CSS @font-face declaration helps the various browsers select the appropriate font it needs without causing you a bunch of headaches. Learn more about this syntax by reading the Fontspring blog post about it.

3. Modify your own stylesheet

To take advantage of your new fonts, you must tell your stylesheet to use them. Look at the original @font-face declaration and find the property called “font-family.” The name linked there will be what you use to reference the font. Prepend that webfont name to the font stack in the “font-family” property, inside the selector you want to change. For example:

p {font-family: 'WebFont', Arial, sans-serif;}

4. Test

Getting webfonts to work cross-browser can be tricky. Use the information below to help you if you find that fonts aren’t loading in a particular browser.
