|I've increasingly noticed websites using pretty fonts that are not commonly included in the standard list of "web-safe" fonts. However many of these sites simultaneously are not using services like Typekit.|
Forrst for example appears to use Bakersville, and I saw a blog post via Hacker News the other day that's using "Helvetica Neue". My question is this: what are the best practices for using pretty fonts on websites?
Are these sites just betting on most visitors having the non-web-safe fonts and then reverting back to generic fonts under the worse case? Would love to hear more from the community about best practices surrounding pretty font usage.
