@GoogleFonts :: The let downs in design and functions!!


There are some serious short fallings with Google Fonts; they only provide the limited number of 5 fonts and for example one that I get a lot of lookups for the *.ik format of fonts when I provision the CSS as well as at times the other ones; the css it should be providing is the following:-

/** Pieces of Eight */
@font-face {
 font-family: 'Pieces of Eight';
 src: url('./Pieces of Eight.dfont') format('dfont'), /* Filesize: 39322 bytes, md5: 34f9ec5aa2b92c7118b6240b4564c214 */

See these are all the formats that are required to be provisioned by CSS for font libraries to be accessed, we provide them on http://fonts.snails.email and output individual packages with them all on http://fonts4web.org.uk; without these all listed remember you need all these formats as CSS is implemented in most things including smartTV which often need *.ik that isn’t provided by Google Fonts or http://font2web.com which means that and a number of other formats that are all required for the full CSS Call to implementing a font fall short and you only have your font working on just PC web browser’s only not all the smartTV all the tablets and mobile devices as well other environments where the manufacture is limited too the font library it can import in it CSS Implementation.

The other short fall in Google Fonts as well as fonts2web.com is it doesn’t provide the font libaries *.php + *.z for TCPDF the PHP7 extension as well as class library in previous versions (fonts.snails.email does however), which means you can do the following call to have a font in TCPDF from us but not Google Fonts.
