Please help me with the name of this font.
Thank you in advance,

Small size & lack of earmark letters make it rash to venture a firm statement. Could be bespoke. Possibly something from Typofonderie
http://www.myfonts.com/foundry/Typofonderie/
Some similarities to Agenda http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/fontbureau/agenda/ with different K, t and a few others. I'll let another typophile stick their neck out on this one.

Thanks Don. Can one have the name of a font from the html page source? In my case, I have looked looked into figaro.fr html code. They refer to .css files and to Google Fonts, but the name of the font is not mentioned...

My Safari inspector says it is Droid Sans Regular http://www.droidfonts.com/info/droid-sans-fonts/

Thank you Michel!
BTW, how can you see that in Safari?

I just selected some text, right clicked, and selected the inspector


You then find the font somewhere in the right pannel. On the Mac I am currently on, I get it in the computed style. At home I think I found it somewhere else.

You still get better with Firefox. Still right click the text and choose "Examiner l'élément" (I guess it is "Inspect" in English).


And then you can directly choose "Polices" (Fonts) in the right panel.

Unfortunately, I have found no browser that gives the "Full Name" to be found inside the font file. All that is given is the css code to load the file .

The program _what font_ will highlight font names as the mouse passes over them. http://chengyinliu.com/whatfont.html Once installed you can turn it on and off in your browser.
