Some fonts, or rather some set of icons

Sometimes on the internet ran into some ingenious solutions, that resolve in a few clicks a job that otherwise would last a few minutes (you, ok, we are talking about minutes, but is always a time-saving). The resources that we mark today (taken from the English blog SixRevisions) are simple font, whose characters consist of monochrome icons ready to be included in the web (with the CSS rule "@font-face"), a technique in use for some time, but that hardly see applied.

The benefits arising from the use of this technique can be summarized as:

  • It 'a cross-browser solution (are supported most of the browser, even IE6),
  • The icon can be scaled on the fly by changing a parameter in the style of font,
  • The color can be changed as quickly always changing the style of the element,
  • And 'possible to add additional effects via CSS properties (for example "text-shadow" and "gradient").
