I had a major problem with IE9 beta as you know with two of my sites. It rejected the cufon.js for some reason and I am pushing them to fix it for the IE9 release.


SOOOO What to do to keep your site viewed on IE9 but you want it to be compatible with IE8.

Simple meta tag insert here it is folks enjoy :D :D :
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=8" />

You can take it back to IE7 or IE6 by replacing the 8 with 7,6.

It might be premature to worry about the I9 - it is still in Beta, so there's no telling what how things will function by the time it's officially released.

I concur, although the compatibility tag is still very useful :)

If you are worried about other people who have IE9 beta not being able to view your special fonts, recode them with @font-face which should work in IE9.

As said before, the final version of IE9 may be fine with Cufon and sIFR. I remember that IE8 beta had problems with my sites, especially drop down menus and filter (opacity), but the final version sorted it out.

No, I am not worried all my content looks fine when I went back to IE8 compatible. I will wait until they implement the cufon compatibility acceptance. I love the hand written text and the other amazing fonts cufon offers. I would rather wait for beta revamp, then hand code it to very few font choices in font-face.

There are hundreds here, http://www.fontsquirrel.com/fontface including hand-written fonts, but perhaps not the one you want.

Personally I doubt if I will ever use Cufon or sIFR now that all major browsers (all IE versions, Firefox, Safari, Chrome and Opera) process @font-face.
