Webfonts Kerning

ttmt's picture

Hi all

I have a few fonts I would like to use online.

I have used font squirrel web font generator http://www.fontsquirrel.com/tools/webfont-generator

The fonts have class kerning that works in all applications but the fonts from the web font generator don't seem to have any kerning.

Am I missing something, is it possible to have kerning in web fonts.

The browser support is very uneven. What works most of the times is a flat kerning table, but expanding the class kerning can add significant weight to the font files.

... like Frode said.

However, for some browsers, you can get kerning by applying the text-rendering: optimizeLegibility; property in your css.

There's some more info here:

although you have to realize this is a moving target right now.
