Elk Grove Village, IL (PRWEB) July 9, 2010
Ascender Corporation, a leading provider of advanced font products, announced a significant enhancement to its FontsLive.com web fonts service offering advanced features to its customers to control how web fonts are loaded into web pages.
Ascender's FontsLive service offers hundreds of premium quality fonts from leading type designers and foundries for license as web fonts (and also as downloads for designers to use on their workstations). FontsLive makes it simple and fast for web designers & developers to implement web fonts by adding a single line of code to web pages. Web fonts improve the typography and branding of websites by using downloadable fonts instead of system fonts or graphics files for headlines. This allows web developers to create more accessible, search-engine friendly and easily editable websites by not locking text into a graphic format.
The WebFont Loader was designed to make it easy to switch between different providers of web fonts. The 'Ascender module' was developed by Ascender and DevBridge to appeal to experienced web developers who use the FontsLive.com web font service.
FontsLive offers a free 30 day trial for customers to see how powerful web fonts are as a way to enhance their web sites. Users can experiment with the standard FontsLive code, or by accessing the WebFont Loader. For more information visit FontsLive.com.
