Typekit delay in fonts loading (3 posts)

    I am using Typekit on a variety of self hosted sites. They all seem to have the same problem - it takes a while for the fonts to load.

    The default font in the stack always shows up for a couple of seconds before the CSS for the font loads.

    This is unsightly and sometimes breaks my layouts momentarily.
    Does anyone else have the same problem?

    Is there anything I can do?

    This worked for me http://blog.typekit.com/2011/05/25/loading-typekit-fonts-asynchronously/

    I used Font events asynchronous pattern, worked a charm.

    Thank you so much, major headache solved!
