How to Add Google Web Fonts to Web pages.

As we mentioned it is very easy to add Google Web Fonts to a web page. You need to provide a link to the style sheet in the <head> section of your page or document. The link should be similar to the below.

1
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=FontName">

Here “http://fonts.googleapis.com/css” is the base css URL. It accepts a query parameter “family“. You can specify any valid name for the “FontName“. Once added you can use the font-family in the CSS section. For example

<style>
.someClass {   	font-family: 'FontName', serif;
        		font-size: 48px;
      		}
</style>

Where the “FontName” should be replaced with proper font name.
In the above example “Inconsolata” is the font family. So the CSS style can be changed to

5
<style>
.someClass {   	font-family: 'Inconsolata', serif;
        		font-size: 48px;
      		}
</style>

Your page may be using more than one web font. How do we link to multiple font css? Linking multiple fonts allows you to use all of those fonts in your page. You can specify multiple fonts in URL string separated using “pipe” symbol. See the example below.

1
http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Tangerine|Inconsolata|Droid+Sans

This will load the fonts Tangerine, Inconsolata and Droid Sans respectively.
