Read PXR + Cufon = Pxfon  

Pronunciation of sIFR Not sure why the sudden interest but this has become quite the frequently asked question of late. Permalink

Cuf√≥n A promising Canvas/VML alternative to sIFR. It’s really a shame they’d let Opera support hold up something as essential as being able to select text though. Permalink

sIFRvault A repository of (presumably public domain) sIFR fonts. (via @ltackett’s tweet) Permalink

Making Web Fonts Work Jon Tan on the current state of embedding typefaces. It never occurred to me that @font-face might incur a delay before rendering text (a common complaint against sIFR). And I had completely forgotten how rubbish ClearType is. Until anti-aliasing discrepancies between platforms can be resolved I don’t see even a standardized approach being accepted by discerning designers. Looks like we’re in for another four years of flash replacement. Permalink

The State of Font Embedding Mark Wubben, the maintainer of sIFR, thinks out loud about font embedding and the various stop-gap alternatives. Permalink

Web Fonts on the Horizon I hate to be cynical but somebody wake me when a major type foundry starts talking (favorably) about web fonts.  Permalink

God hearts sIFR Abel is dead, long live Abel. Permalink
