This is the first post of hopefully many that describes the technology I have used on this website. It will provide a great reference for me to come back to and also introduce to others some great tools and resources.
When I first heard about sIFR I had to double take because it almost seemed too good to be true. One of htmls many limitations was the inability to use a bespoke font that differed from those supported by the operating systems and therefore run the risk of it not displaying properly on a users screen. To quote sIFR’s website:
A few things to watch out for
- sIFR does not work when opened straight from the local filesystem. You must load sIFR from a web server.
- You can’t change the size of the browser text on the fly, you must click refresh for the changes to take effect
- Flash must be enabled/installed for your Flash Text to display
