Back in March we discussed how to use FLIR (Facelift Image Replacement) as one way to replace text and use any font on your website. FLIR is a great alternative to sIFR that does not require Flash, but there are some good alternatives - namely, Cufon.
Unlike sIFR (Scalable Inman Flash Replacement) Cufon requires no plugins. Cufon consists of two individual parts - a font generator (which converts fonts to a proprietary format) and a rendering engine written in Javacript.
The font generation is essentially just a web-based interface to FontForge (an outline font editor that lets designers create postscript, truetype, opentype, cid-keyed, multi-master, cff, svg and bitmap fonts, or edit existing ones, which allows for the conversion from one format to another).
