If fontsquirrel is telling you they won't process your font, this may be a good indicator that you don't have the proper EULA to embed your fonts for web use. Just throwing it out there, you may have this taken care of
You do need a .css file to link to your fonts. Your embed code would liik something like this:
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="mystyle.css">
Inside your CSS file would look something like this:
src: url('LinkToRegular-webfont.eot?#iefix') format('embedded-opentype'),
You can always make your own font using the method above, just be careful to abide by your EULA!
Thanks so much for getting back to me! That's really helpful. I do have the proper EULA on these as I've just purchased a licence for it this aftrenoon. I did also locate the .css file that came with the webfonts.
As per your advice, I used this code:
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="JAS.css">
The JAS.css file and the 'webfonts' folders are both in the main directory that my edge file is in and they all seem to be linking to the right folders etc, but it's still not working. It's just automatically defaulting to the standard serif typeface.
I've attatched three grabs of my folder layout and hierarcy incase you can see something obvious that I've missed.
Thanks again for your help!
THANK YOU! When I rewrote the .css document as per your instructions it worked! There must have been something a bit funny about the format that the one I recieved with the fonts came in.
I now have my proper typeface working, just in time to make my deadline - phew!
Thanks so much for your help, that's one tiny part of this whole thing that I understand a bit more now
All the best,
Good to hear you got it working!
