Cufón is an incredibly simple and effective method for incorporating non-standard fonts into a web page and one in which its functionality is not dependant on server-side languages or plug-ins. Cufón operates solely on a few lines of Javascript code and uses combination of VML (Vector Mark-up Language), for Internet Explorer, and HTML5’s Canvas feature to render the fonts. Cufón provides a font converter tool on their homepage that will allow you to convert your chosen font to SVG and creates a Javascript file for you to reference within your HTML. Nettuts+ editor Jeffrey Way has previously written an excellent step-by-step tutorial of how to integrate Cufón into your webpage.
