Description

Fonts.com web fonts is a web font service from Monotype Imaging. The service offers more than 20,000 web fonts. Among the available fonts are famous typefaces used in thousands of corporate designs, such as the Helvetica®, Frutiger®, Univers®, Trade Gothic® and Gill Sans® designs. The fonts are served from a global server network and work in all browsers supporting @font-face linking. The Web fonts are served as EOT for Internet Explorer, WOFF for FireFox, SVG for mobile Safari and as TrueType fonts for all other browsers.
The system works in a similar way to other webfont services. First, you start a new “project” for your website, then you assign fonts and selectors. You will get a line of code to embed in your website. Subscribers to the service’s Standard and Professional plans can choose between JavaScript and non-JavaScript scripts. Professional plan subscribers also receive 50 “desktop downloads” or installable versions of their Web fonts every 30 days.

The Fonts.com website also offers several useful tools and utilities for web typography:
