Gabrielle Regular - This is some text to show how it looks without any smoothing
Gabrielle Regular - The same font but this time with a little smoothing around the edges.
You may have noticed when using @font-face fonts that they generally appear a little jagged around the edges. Well this is a simple method to apply a little smoothing (anti-aliasing) so that they look more appealing.
Just apply a very small text shadow in the same color as the text.
The first block of text above uses the @font-face styling and in most browsers appears a little jagged.
The second block of text has the text shadow applied and in Firefox, Opera, Safari, Chrome and IE10 it appears 'smoothed'.
Because of all the time and effort spent in producing this demonstration I would ask that you respect my copyright.
