When I first began learning web design, I have to admit that I was a little depressed. I thought that I was limited to using only a few very restrictive and basic typefaces. Little did I know that the variety of fonts available to web designers is almost as vast and numerous as those open to graphic designers. What made me even happier is knowing that, although there are many web typefaces out there that need to be purchased in order to be used, websites such as www.fontsquirrel.com or www.typekit.com offer free alternatives. Much like dafont.com, these sites offer free font downloads. They even go one step further and convert the typefaces into a web ready format by writing the code for you. All you have to do to use the typeface is select the code that they provide for you and insert it into your stylesheet. It’s that easy!
