Google Font API?

Post by cmebd » Fri Dec 17, 2010 3:41 pm

I have been looking at the above api and font gallery and was wondering if it can be incorporated in AC?

Cheers

It probably could be, but I would not recommend it.
I am getting very leery about using links to other sources.
We have had a link to google api jquery on the home page here. A few days ago, I could not view the slider images, which required the jquey link.
I started to check why the jquery error came up and the problem was my anti-virus software would not allow it to load.
I went to the anti-virus link and it had the google link listed a [phising] link.
We installed jquery locally and all is well.

Thanks Brent, I thought it may be a problem - so basically as long as we are not linking to external sources there should be a problem. If I wanted to use other, similar, options like sIFRD or Cufon?
