Journal Font in IE

Hello Experts!

I am having problems getting the font I downloaded from Font Squirrel , the Journal font, to display properly in IE 8.

Here is the CSS:

@font-face 
{
	font-family: Journal;
	src: url('fonts/journal-webfont.eot');
	src: url('fonts/journal-webfont.woff') format('woff'), url('fonts/journal-webfont.ttf') format('truetype'), url('fonts/journal-webfont.svg#journal') format('svg');
}

.journal
{
               font-family: Journal, sans-serif;
}

Open in new window


I think the CSS is ok, and so I am suspecting that the EOT file I downloaded from Font Squirrel might be corrupted.  Does anyone know how I can check this?

I just downloaded that font from Font Squirrel and used the demo.html page to verify that it does work properly in IE8.  Look at the files that came with it.  You will see that the name of the font in the CSS is 'JournalRegular', not just 'Journal'.

Try using single quote
@font-face 
{
	font-family: 'Journal';
	src: url('fonts/journal-webfont.eot');
	src: url('fonts/journal-webfont.woff') format('woff'), url('fonts/journal-webfont.ttf') format('truetype'), url('fonts/journal-webfont.svg#journal') format('svg');
}

.journal
{
               font-family: 'Journal', sans-serif;
}

Hello Experts!

And thank you for your replies and kind assistance.

@DaveBaldwin: I'm sorry, where did you see and use this demo.html page?

@jagadishdulal: Single quotes have no effect.

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

I got it from Font Squirrel in the web-font download package.  Go to http://www.fontsquirrel.com/fonts/Journal , click on the Webfont Kit tab and then on the blue button that says 'Download@font-face kit'.  When you unzip it, there is a demo.html page and a CSS file to go with it.  It works as it is without any changes in all browsers.

As Homer Simpson says, "Duoh!"

I didn't even notice the demo.html file when I downloaded the Webfont Kit.  Thanks DaveBaldwin, you saved me again.
