I wrote last week about how much I really liked fontspace.com as a place to grab fonts. However, for my typography page, I ended up using Google fonts. I ended up really liking 2 fonts I found through Google and I found the system to use their fonts very simple.
One hiccup I did encounter was easily fixed. I used Google’s instructions to add the code to the ” head” of the html on Dreamweaver by copying and pasting.
link href=’https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Fredericka+the+Great’ rel=’stylesheet’ type=’text/css’
When I first put this in, I kept getting errors from Dreamweaver. After some troubleshooting, I realized all you have to do to fix this is replace all of the single quotes with double quotes and the problem is solved.
It should read:
link href=“https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Fredericka+the+Great“ rel=“stylesheet“ type=“text/css“
Overall, I found adding different fonts this way very easy. The other parts of HTML and CSS are not as simple and I’m still struggling a little to get everything do as I want.
