    Default How to install/use a font...

    Hi,

    This isn't specific to ZC, but I'm trying to do it for my ZC.

    Here is my site:
    http://001mc.justmedical.biz/

    In the top right right I have a search box. The button to submit a search is a little symbol. That symbol is just escaped html () using font family FontAwesome.

    However, I noticed that FontAwesome fails validation (https://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/). You can plug my site link in to see what I mean.

    I'd like to switch to font family ionicons with a dif escaped html symbol (). It's pretty much the exact same thing, only I've read that ionicons validate correctly.

    But I can't seem to get it to work. Maybe I need to download the font (http://ionicons.com/) and somehow install it?

    I'm not sure how to do that. Can somebody point me in the right direction?

    Might be kind of cool to know how to do this anyway, in case I want to use unique fonts in the future.

    Thanks!

    IMHO, I wouldn't do this as it creates more problems than it's worth. Agreed, it is not a ZC item but, a Google search of "adding a specific font to my website" will give you several articles to peruse.
    Please note that most of the methods involve CSS3 and are probably not compatible with a two-year old browser. Some methods require the customer to install the font.

    Thanks, dbltoe.

    I will bootstrap it then. When I find a solid strategy, I'll post it here.
