Damnit Jobs, stop posting here and talk things out with Gates directly ;) Seriously though, I think it’s pretty clear from this thread that @font-face simply doesnt look good in all browsers and every OS. And all the problems you describe with cufon, I’ve never had any of them. It’s a 5 minute set-up and I’m done. Same with @font-face though. When the latter looks good in every browser it’s clear that would be the best option. Untill then I’ll stick with cufon.

Hey guys,

I see this all the time and it’s become a bit of a pet peeve for me. When using cufón, you shouldn’t call the plugin for each individual element.

Bad

Cufon.replace('h1');
Cufon.replace('h2');
Cufon.replace('h3');
Cufon.replace('h4');

Just call the plugin once and chain your elements together to be processed in one swoop.

Good

Cufon.replace('h1, h2, h3, h4');
I’ll start asking that authors begin doing it the correct way, although I won’t reject an item solely for this. Upon approval (or along with a soft-rejection), I’ll request that this is also fixed. Thanks!

not much use if you want to use different fonts for different headings though

Stop using Cufón at all. Start using @font-face ;)
Not really. On Win browsers it looks like crap.
Depends on what font you’re using :)

I haven’t found any fonts that look great with @font-face on Win. :(
