Use non-standard fonts on your site

Image replacement script Flir

Using this script you can use non-standard fonts on your website. Not that you couldn’t do that before by using an image, but this does it for you automatically If you change your font later you only need to change the code, not all the images.

 

From the site:

"Facelift Image Replacement (or FLIR, pronounced fleer) is an image replacement script that dynamically generates image representations of text on your web page in fonts that otherwise might not be visible to your visitors. The generated image will be automatically inserted into your web page via Javascript and visible to all modern browsers."

Be sure to read the Quickstart guide

There is a very simple way to prevent it by adding a few lines of code to your .htaccess file. Thesitewizard.com will show you how.

Host reviews

Hosting sites reviewed

This site claims to be an impartial reviewer of web hosts.

from the site:

We are a group of professional webmasters who have had enough of all the lousy and half-hearted web hosting providers out there. So, we created a site that would credit the reliable web hosts and warn visitors of the lesser ones, sort the good from the bad.

 

While one should always be sceptical of claims of impartiality, this site has a very wide range of reviews and it’s useful to compare available service plans when finding one that meets your needs.
