Adobe and Typekit are collaborating to offer Adobe Web Fonts (http://www.adobe.com/type), which are engineered to work on multiple screens and can be deployed on any website.
Avoiding the need to convert type to bitmapped image formats, Adobe Web Fonts are delivered straight to browsers via Typekit’s global network. As aweb font service, Typekit not only provides access to a carefully chosen set of over 120 fonts (16 families) from the Adobe Type Library, but also drives more fonts to more web sites than any other company on the web, says co-founder and president, Bryan Mason.
Using the @font-face rule in CSS, developers can now choose from a broad array of fonts, reference them directly in HTML, and know that the text can be accessed by search engines, he adds. Designers can make changes to fonts directly through the Typekit online service, without having to change code.
