sIFR3 - fancy fonts on web pages

January 8 2008 : posted under web design

I’ve just been working on a site that uses sIFR to incorporate a specific font into the design - this works very well generally but we had a problem where links did not work on the MAC or in IE6.

This problem seems to have been solved in sIFR3 which also brings much more flexibility - styles can change within the replaced text, filters like drop shadow area available - and actions like mouseover can trigger javascript callbacks.

The only thing I couldn’t see a way of doing was changing the background colour of a link on hover…
