One of the producers at PJA shared this presentation with me. The Real Life Social Network. I’m still wading through it and I didn’t want to lose track of this.
I’ve always avoided using non-web fonts at work. I’ve had my reasons: complexity of implementation, creating confusion with design teams, concerns about search-visibility, setting client expectations. My bias is changing. As my teams use more semantic XHTML I find it easier to get on the side of the designer. sIFR has been a viable approach for a lot of designers and companies for a long time. I’m joining the party a little late, but I’m interested. Does anyone have any other thoughts about the pros and cons of sIFR.
