This video displays how to set different fonts with font-face rule on Joomla! website. First, Phoca Font component will be installed. After installation of the component, Phoca Font plugin will be installed. This plugin will be enabled in Plugin Manager. Then, specific font will be installed in Phoca Font component. On the frontend of Joomla! site, the font will be changed after refreshing the site. In case the plugin will be disabled, the standard font will be displayed.

Fonts displayed with help of font-face rule are independent on visitor's browsers and operating system. It means, if visitor doesn't have installed the font set by the website, the font will be loaded from the server and will be displayed. It will be not replaced by some other similar font found in visitor's operating system.
