A little bit of sIFR

It’s been a long time coming. sIFR (Scalable Inman Flash Replacement) has, after all my complaining, made it to this site. I’ve used the technique, with various degrees of success, on other sites. So, I thought lets give it a shot.

The solution remains a hack but it’s a solution to a real problem that browser developers refuse to deal with. Finally I feel that sIFR has come along in leaps and bounds, both in terms of technology (JavaScript & Flash) and font rendering. Typography remains a big problem on the web and so far I haven’t seen any real progress to solve it. Some are making the best of it, and I’m not so sure about some the solutions. This whole CSS Resetting and global baselining is starting to get ridiculous.  I’ll stop here before I go on another rant.
