    do search engines read webfonts?

    html5 webfonts are becoming a lot more popular with the wordpress themes i tend to use. do search engines pickup the text within the webfonts?

    for instance, would they pickup the Lorem ipsum headings and subheadings in this theme demo? http://www.unispheredesign.com/demo/minim/white/

    please advise. thanks in advance.

    i don't see why they wouldn't. just view the source, that's what they're seeing.

    search engines generally read the text HTML fonts.

    thanks. i can understand that text is text if its right next to eachother but the search engines still recognize a phrase or heading if its seperated by a lot of other html code, just like the text in that example site is?

    Code:
    <h3>
    <cufon class="cufon cufon-canvas" alt="Lorem " style="width: 97px; height: 30px; ">
    <canvas width="122" height="34" style="width: 122px; height: 34px; top: -3px; left: -1px; "/>
    <cufontext>Lorem</cufontext>
    </cufon>
    <cufon class="cufon cufon-canvas" alt="ipsum" style="width: 86px; height: 30px; ">
    <canvas width="91" height="34" style="width: 91px; height: 34px; top: -3px; left: -1px; "/>
    <cufontext>ipsum</cufontext>
    </cufon>
    </h3>
    so the search engines read it like this?
    Code:
    <h3>Lorem ipsum</h3>
    is that right?

    That is JS processed code. Search engines read your raw HTML.
