Important information for Cufón users
As it currently stands, version 1.09 does not work in IE9 beta which was just released.
Just in case it doesn't work in the final version either, we've implemented a fix in the
latest development version. There will be a new release some time in the near future.
Meanwhile, there are also a few ways to fix your site without having
to update your
cufon-yui.js. See here for details.
You might also want to take this opportunity to try Typekit, a hosted,
@font-face-based alternative. Yes, that means they support text
selection. It's the easiest way to embrace standards.
Select the font you'd like to use
On Windows, you may first have to copy the font file out of the Fonts folder and paste it elsewhere in order to be able to select it.
Currently only TrueType (TTF), OpenType (OTF), Printer Font Binary (PFB) and PostScript fonts are supported. Files are disposed of immediately after conversion.
Useful if you're using multiple variants of the same font (bold, italic etc). Sometimes they may have slightly different family names, which may lead to unexpected behavior.
