You know all those pages that say things like "You need to have the D'ni font installed to view the bla bla bla"?

Well, the future is now! Meet Web Fonts. And, you too can take advantage of this exciting advancement in cyber-typographical whatever. But, fret not and worry not! I've done all the hard work for you.

The instructions are here: http://rel.to/webfont

Enjoy.

Would it be possible to add the fonts into Google's fonts?

Google Fonts FAQ

Font Donation

It would seem to be more long term and reliable. If Cyan has licensed the fonts for web use, it would seem smart to use Google's faster servers.

Thanks, OHB! I messed about doing this for my own use sometime last year, but wasn't sure of the license for making it available for public use.

This will be handy for a great number of D'ni fan sites!

I seriously doubt Google would include it anyway.

I was under the impression that the D'ni font had already been released by Cyan. It's certainly been available to download freely over at the DLF forever. http://linguists.bahro.com/essentials.html

I have verified with Cyan that the font is free to use and perfectly legal to use as a web-font. So, ya'll can knock yourselves out. :)

I checked Google Web Fonts today and it appears that only those with with authorship rights to the font can submit it. Meaning, only Cyan could do this. Bummer.

On the bright side, maybe they'll put it on their long list of things to do? :D

Wanted to bump this because I noticed, OHB, that the SVG file for the D'ni font is missing from your server. I dunno if any still-supported browsers exist that don't also support WOFF or straight-up TTF, but in the event that there are, I thought you might like to know :).

I'm not sure why I didn't just do this in the first place, but...I've moved the font files and css to a CDN to make things even faster for people and to reduce some strain on my server. I'll be putting in some redirects for those still using the old one, but you can easily update by doing this one thing:

Replace this:
Code:
<link rel="stylesheet" href="http://uru.orangehairedboy.com/font/dni.css" type="text/css" charset="utf-8" />

With this:
Code:
<link rel="stylesheet" href="http://urufont.orangehairedboy.com/dni.css" type="text/css" charset="utf-8" />


As an added bonus, all the files on the CDN come with the Access-Control-Allow-Origin: * header set. If you don't know what that means, just know that it's a good thing! :)

Instructions remain at their original location: http://rel.to/webfont
