This page looks like your code but it mentions something about a bug with 'text-shadow'.  http://www.fontsquirrel.com/forum/discussion/10/font-face-chrome-issue/p1

Please find the source code in the attachments, I have added a page and Implemented FanwoodRegular web font. I have all the five files in the App_Themes folder, Please run the application for the difference between Firefox and Chrome, Internet Explore. I have also added the  MIME type in iis and in web.config file. Please download the .zip file exact and WebSite\App_Themes\default change the file extension .eot,.svg,.ttf,.woff. When I uploaded the .zip file I was unable to upload the file. so that I have removed . from the file name. Please download the .zip and change the extensions. I am working around for 2 days not able to get the solution.

Hi,

I have heard that the order of the fonts is important and according to font-squirrel for that font it should be

@font-face {
    font-family: 'FanwoodRegular';
    src: url('Fanwood-webfont.eot');
    src: url('Fanwood-webfont.eot?#iefix') format('embedded-opentype'),
         url('Fanwood-webfont.woff') format('woff'),
         url('Fanwood-webfont.ttf') format('truetype'),
         url('Fanwood-webfont.svg#FanwoodRegular') format('svg');
    font-weight: normal;
    font-style: normal;
}

Open in new window


It's worth a shot.
I also ran across this page claiming that Chrome sometimes doesn't like coming last in the font list and that you can change the CSS to just target chrome and then it is happy.

Excerpt from http://www.adtrak.co.uk/blog/font-face-chrome-rendering/#fix 
@font-face {
font-family: 'chunk-webfont';
src: url('../../includes/fonts/chunk-webfont.eot');
src: url('../../includes/fonts/chunk-webfont.eot?#iefix') format('eot'),
url('../../includes/fonts/chunk-webfont.woff') format('woff'),
url('../../includes/fonts/chunk-webfont.ttf') format('truetype'),
url('../../includes/fonts/chunk-webfont.svg') format('svg');
font-weight: normal;
font-style: normal;
}

@media screen and (-webkit-min-device-pixel-ratio:0) {
@font-face {
font-family: 'chunk-webfont';
src: url('../../includes/fonts/chunk-webfont.svg') format('svg');

}
}

Open in new window


I hope one of those works for you.

There are differences in the way browsers treat URL's in style. Try changing:
url('Fanwood-webfont........

Open in new window

...to...
url('/folder-path-of-app-after-domain/Fanwood-webfont.....

Open in new window

if you try with something like this?

@font-face {
    font-family: 'FanwoodRegular';
    src: url('Fanwood-webfont.eot');
    src: local('?'),
         url('Fanwood-webfont.eot?#iefix') format('embedded-opentype'),
         url('Fanwood-webfont.ttf') format('truetype'),
         url('Fanwood-webfont.woff') format('woff'),
         url('Fanwood-webfont.svg#FanwoodRegular') format('svg');
    font-weight: normal;
    font-style: normal;
}

I'm looking through your code and you haven't included the css anywhere? You'll need to do this in your Default.aspx file

eg

<head runat="server">
    <title></title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="App_Themes/default/default.css">
	<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="App_Themes/default/Fanwood.css">
</head>

Open in new window




I've also noticed that your font files do not have extensions, they're just "Fanwood-Italic-webfonteot" etc instead of "Fanwood-Italic-webfont.eot"

This works in Chrome (Removed the aspx to show you the generated html):

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="App_Themes/default/default.css">
	<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="App_Themes/default/Fanwood.css">
</head>
<body>
    <form id="form1">
    <div class="FanwoodRegularTestClass">
        Free fonts have met their match. We know how hard it is to find quality freeware

I had to add the full stop on all your font files to create the extension
added extensions

After working on another question about @font-face, I went and downloaded Fanwood from Font Squirrel.  The demo.html file and CSS works perfectly in Chrome and Firefox.

And as you can see all i've done is rename the font files to have their correct extensions and it renders fine in Chrome & Firefox

He mentioned the need to rename the files at http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web_Development/Fonts/Q_28158119.html#a39252498 above.  So there is something else about his page or application that is preventing the fonts from displaying.

Thanks Dave :)  Still the css files were missing from the aspx files... if you don't link the styles the fonts aren't going to work wouldn't you agree?

I do agree.  Both the CSS that includes the @font-face from the download and the CSS that defines the usage must be included and accessible.
