View Full Version : image replacement
19th November 06, 10:36 AM
I want to have my headers in a custom font. I know i can use various image replacement techniques but all of these require me to add in a css style for each header. Is there an accessible, quicker method that does not rely on creating new styles?

sIFR (http://www.mikeindustries.com/sifr/) will do that. It uses Flash to replace the text with a custom font. The font can be loaded into the Flash, meaning you don't have to rely on the user to have that specific font.

thanks, it looks great. Do you know if it works with a transparent background? and can you apply drop shadows (much like the menu on WLC) ?

I think it states on the sIFR page that it only suppports transparency on *most* browsers. Some browsers don't support it.

Yeah, you'll get away with transparency with sIFR in modern browsers, like you will with flash normally. sIFR would be the way to go though it is fantastic
