Type kit Question

Recommended Posts

Aires

Morning all,

I was wondering if anyone is noticing  that when you use typekit fonts that for a split sec the default font shows briefly then the goes away.

Is there away to stop this.

It's only for a sec and most will not notice but I would still like to correct it.

Did not notice this with type kit. But had similar with myfonts, until I started to self host the fonts. 

Does it do that on every page load?

I notice it mostly on the first pageload but after that I don't see it again.

You think it is just type kit script taking its time to pull in the info and catch up.

Hi @Aires Are you using the compact script or the advanced version. The default compact script should block rendering while the Javascript loads and I myself have not seen it for a while. Quote from Typekit website "The advanced embed code loads asynchronously. It provides better control over rendering, but it requires custom CSS to hide the flash of unstyled text." http://help.typekit.com/customer/portal/articles/649336 

I just realised that it could also just be that I'm close to a Typekit server.

Ok that's good to know. Maybe things load different with pl5 I have DMS site that just use the default script without any issues.

But I will try the advanced version later today.

Thanks for the input.

@Aires I have researched this a bit more. I first didn't notice it but I also sometimes see this flash. Maybe it has to do with how the scripts are embedded in in PL5 compared to DMS2. @Simon is this something you can fix?
