Call Google Web Fonts from CSS

Hello,
I found Google Web Fonts recently and tried to use them within my pages.
They work fine but I have to add a line on every page (have more than 1000).
Is it possible to add this line in CSS to let every page call the fonts?

Here's the line:
<link  href="http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=PT+Sans:regular,italic,bold,bolditalic" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" >

Open in new window


Is it possible to add it into my unique css?

Thanks!!

You may be able to call it like this:
@font-face {
  font-family: 'Inconsolata';
  src: url('http://themes.googleusercontent.com/fonts/font?kit=J_eeEGgHN8Gk3Eud0dz8jw');
}

Open in new window

Then in your CSS you could use the Inconsolata font with any element. I don't know how you will find the google source URL for the other fonts without having them installed once so you can then view the source output.

If you will tell me the font that you want to use, I will send the CSS code like above, but with your font.

For multiple Google Fonts put this in the header befor the body tag:

<link href='http://http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Syncopate:b|Raleway:i' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css' />>

One to may >, Here is the correct code:
<link href='http://http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Syncopate:b|Raleway:i' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css' />

Open in new window


Then just use it in place of regular font names.

sorry jeremy, what I want to do is avoid adding this line on every page (more than 1000).
I want it into the style.css (which is called from every page +1000)
That is, one page change affects +1000 and no +1000 changes ;)
Thanks!

I don't know what else to tell you. You will have to put it inside the html of the page somewhere to get it to work.

Do you not have a header template:? I guess I am too used to using PHP driven websites. 1 Header for all pages.

Just placing it inside of the css won't work.

See the article here from NetTuts:

Sorry Jeremy but I wasn't clear enough on this issue.

Can I reference it from the CSS file instead of HTML pages?
Maybe, there is a way to modify that line and make it fit for CSS syntax.

Thanks.

PS. I think that your last sentence is the final word "just placing it inside of the css won't work"

I got to mention that using the url in my code, I've replaced the Inconsolata example and it works.
Thanks Jeremy!!

That's the code that finally worked for me:

@font-face {
  font-family: 'PT Sans';
  src: url('http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=PT+Sans:regular,italic,bold,bolditalic');
}

Open in new window


I've left the rest of the Google code line and just took the url part.
