Update: thank you to those who helped me online and off. Thanks to Sasha, your suggestion to remove the quotation marks from the font URL string in my CSS worked like a charm, and Alex and Alexa, I got the opacity to work in PhotoShop! So now I’ve embedded the script font I wanted and have a header image. (Now I need to figure out how to center the header in the middle of the photo!)
As far as comments go, this week I agreed with Roger’s suggestion to suggest Lynda a few months out for future incoming ClioII students. M.C. Farrington’s post started an interesting discussion about the fate of design in today’s web world. And I dropped a couple of links on Sasha’s World of WebFonts post and
AnnaLise’s post on script-y fonts.
