I'm having a site of mine re-designed and the designer is using the font BigNoodleTitling.

What's the standard with web fonts these days? I've never heard of BigNoodleTitling before, and wonder if it's ok to design a site using this font.

Just after a second opinion basically

It is available as a web font so it is at least usable.  Someone will probably have to pay the $15 for the use of it.

Thanks Dave.

 Is this a font that would work for anyone or would I have to use the @font-face tag?

I see in http://www.w3schools.com/cssref/css3_pr_font-face_rule.asp it says:

"Note: Internet Explorer 8 and earlier versions, do not support the @font-face rule."

You would need to use @font-face tag.  Google Fonts http://www.google.com/fonts/ says they have a javascript method to use their web fonts so you might find something there.

If you run run a WordPress, you understand the potential headaches you may face when updating your plugins and themes. Do you choose to update on the fly and risk taking down your site; or do you set up a staging, keep it in sync with your live site and use that to test updates?

Ok thanks, think I'll tell the designer to just go with one of the main fonts, i.e. Arial then.
