    What font replacement technique is used?

    Hi,

    Cant figure out what font replacement technique is used on this site - http://funfunfunfest.com/

    Can anybody spot how it is done?
    The usual tell-tale js includes are missing!

    Any help appreciated, thanks.

    Typical ....... a moment after I post I find the answer !!!

    They are using @font-face (CSS3) in conjunction with fontsquirrel

    I am not sure using @font-face is a great replacement method due to the size of the fonts.

    I would stick to something that is cross browser reliant such as Cufon or Sifr

    Right, @font-face is not cross browser or it could be cross browser if used with those Font dedicated servers.

    Actually @font-face can be cross-browser compatible, since IE supports its own brand. If you follow the fontsquirrel stuff it covers this.

    It won't work at all in Opera 9, because that doesn't support @font-face at all, but Opera10, FF3.5+, Chrome, Safari 3.1+ are all fine.
