html - scss - CSS @font-face not working in ie




woff vs woff2 (6)

I have the following CSS that works within Firefox but not IE. Obviously, the fonts are within the directory. Any suggestions?

@font-face {
    font-family: "Futura";
    src: url("../fonts/Futura_Medium_BT.eot"); /* IE */
    src: local("Futura"), url( "../fonts/Futura_Medium_BT.ttf" ) format("truetype"); /* non-IE */  
}

body nav {
    font-family: Futura,  Verdana, Arial, sans-serif;
    font-size:1.2em;
    height: 40px;
}

Change as per below

@font-face {
    font-family: "Futura";
    src: url("../fonts/Futura_Medium_BT.eot"); /* IE */
    src: local("Futura"), url( "../fonts/Futura_Medium_BT.ttf" ) format("truetype"); /* non-IE */  
}

body nav {
     font-family: "Futura";
    font-size:1.2em;
    height: 40px;
}

Font Squirrel did not work for me. I uploaded a font for conversion to multiple font format for IE support. It performed onversion, which I was able to download. I then uploaded content to my server per specs. I was only either able to get Firefox or IE to work but not both. The solution that worked for me was The Mo Bullet Proofer link above.


From http://readableweb.com/mo-bulletproofer-font-face-css-syntax/

Now that web fonts are supported in Firefox 3.5 and 3.6, Internet Explorer, Safari, Opera 10.5, and Chrome, web authors face new questions: How do these implementations differ? What CSS techniques will accommodate all? Firefox developer John Daggett recently posted a little roundup about these issues and the workarounds that are being explored. In response to that post, and in response to, particularly, Paul Irish’s work, I came up with the following @font-face CSS syntax. It’s been tested in all of the above named browsers including IE 8, 7, and 6. So far, so good. The following is a test page that declares the free Droid font as a complete font-family with Regular, Italic, Bold, and Bold Italic. View source for details. Alert: Be aware that Readable Web has released it’s first @font-face related software utility for creating natively compressed EOT files quickly and easily. It has it’s own web site and, in addition to the utility itself, the download package contains helpful documentation, a test font, and an EOT test page. It’s called EOTFAST If you’re working with @font-face, it’s a must-have.

Here’s The Mo’ Bulletproofer Code:

@font-face{ /* for IE */
    font-family:FishyFont;
    src:url(fishy.eot);
}
@font-face { /* for non-IE */
    font-family:FishyFont;
    src:url(http://:/) format("No-IE-404"),url(fishy.ttf) format("truetype");
}

I have found if the font face declarations are inside a media query IE (both edge and 11) won't load them; they need to be the first thing declared in the stylesheet and not wrapped in a media query



You could use the Google Font API. They say it works from IE 6 and up. (I've not tested this.)

Google’s serving infrastructure takes care of converting the font into a format compatible with any modern browser (including Internet Explorer 6 and up), ...
