Cufón : What is Cufon and How Cufon works

Cufón aims to become a worthy alternative to sIFR, which despite its merits still remains painfully tricky to set up and use. To achieve this ambitious goal the following requirements were set:

  1. No plug-ins required – it can only use features natively supported by the client
  2. Compatibility – it has to work on every major browser on the market
  3. Ease of use – no or near-zero configuration needed for standard use cases
  4. Speed – it has to be fast, even for sufficiently large amounts of text

How Does Cufon work?

Cufón consists of two individual parts – a font generator, which converts fonts to a proprietary format and a rendering engine written in JavaScript.
