I have a strange front-face issue.
I have generated my font on font squirrel and linked to the files within my css as normal. It works on my local host and my own hosting server. However when I put it on my friends server it does not show the fonts correctly.
The strange as it by using a little firefox add-on FOUNT the page is using the correct font at the correct size but it looks a lot larger in on this server only!
I can PM a link over but don't like putting links on forums as this post then comes up in searches for my website. Never looks good

I have run in to that problem before. It's displaying on your computer because you have that font installed on your computer. But when uploaded and defined in your css @font-face, or in a css by itself and @import in your main css, zap.
Mine was a truetype font, but maybe it wasn't a true truetype font, or maybe the embedded font specs weren't up to snuff, I'm not sure, but it would not work over the Internet. I used a back-up font instead and everything's fine.
Well I converted the fonts using another system and not font squirrel and it still did not work. I then done some more searching and with a little help from chrome and it's developer tools I found that the server did not serve the fonts.
Basically it was an MIME issue with the server and I needed to ask the host to add these:-
WOFF – application/x-font-woff
TTF – font/ttf
OTF – font/otf
EOT – application/vnd.ms-fontobject
SVG – image/svg+xml
And it all worked.
Sorry not to post links but I work freelance and don't want my clients sites to show up on forums in google searches. I use forums to help me and hope I can also offer others help by posting the solutions.
