    In wordpress, when you make a blog entry, it displays the date year etc of that blog.

    Is there a php/jquery script that can take any kind of title and render an image of that?

    In other words if the entry data is "20th july 2010" how would I get it to render each of the three items in a different font/image.

    right.

    but this will not be websafe, will be custom, ie, very unlikely to be on user's comp. I heard there was a script that could do that.

    produces results from any font you upload, or ones they already have. Gives a kit for you to upload which works cross browser

    Yeah something like CUFON.

    Basically taking entry titles and blog titles and automatically rendering them into the custom font as an image.

    If embedding works better, i'd be up for that.

    I use the plugin, TTFTitles.

    And yes, it works fine with 2.92 and 3.x. :)

    dreeftwood, what you are looking for is probably this:

    Forget the earlier mentioned work-arounds, they are just frustrated solutions to an old problem :) Typekit is more like the new, Real deal. There's a free/trial version of it, but you might wanna go for an subscription though, to reap all the benefits and the full library.

    Sharing information is good. I hope it helps ;)

    I am currently working on this issue and I'm just using the @font-face css rule, works just fine, no need for images, javascripts, flash or the likes of such. Typekit is a very advanced @font-face generator, so you can do it yourself

    in this case the font has to match, no variables.
