Web fonts - Overview
Web fonts allow web designers to use fonts which are not installed on the viewer’s computer. By using the CSS @font-face rule a web browser can temporarily download any font and use it to display text. Web fonts come in a number of different formats as the various web browsers support different subsets of those formats. Parachute fonts are offered in three major formats i.e. woff, eot, svg, which are compatible with all existing browsers today.
