For those of you who have beat your head repeatedly against the archaic wall of finite system-only web fonts, relief is here. Tired of Arial? Bored with Times New Roman? Fatigued by Verdana? Insulted by Comic Sans? Me too. Typekit to the rescue!
Typekit is a San Francisco web app company produced by Small Batch Inc. They offer a flexible, subscription-based service which provides web-only linking to an extensive library of Open Type fonts, all neatly organized and tagged for your perusing pleasure. In other words, they handle the licensing, and you gain access to non-sucking letterforms, available with the mere insertion of a line of JavaScript. Finally, real fonts for the web. It’s about time.
