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.
