cufón vs. @font-face

In Uncategorized on July 8, 2010 at 1:21 pm

Okay, I just did my first “cufón vs. @font-face” comparison and cufón ended up looking way better. These tests are from my online resume where I have been using cufón for quite some time to display the headers in the Kon Tiki Kona font (you won’t be able to tell the difference unless you are viewing this article on its own; if you view it from the front page of the blog both images will appear squished):

Unless I can find a way to get lettering displayed with the CSS @font-face property to turn up clearer I may be forced to stick with cufón for now.
