Google Fonts API

Google have made an announcement today that will make many web designers extremely happy. While this isn’t very exciting to the normal person if solves quite a lot of hassle when it comes to implementing nontraditional Font Faces in to your website.

A new Google API for Fonts has been released which now allows easy font implementation which can also be rendered in IE6. By linking the the new API ( <link href=’http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine’ rel=’stylesheet’ type=’text/css’> ) you can select from a variety of fonts in the existing collection and add to your CSS as normal. ( body { font-family: ‘Tangerine’, serif; } )

While the range of fonts isn’t massive yet, it won’t belong before we can start using any font wish.

All I can say is, well done . Something designers have wanted for a very long time.
