I need to use some fonts on my skin. Can you please let me what is the best/ recommended approach to embed an external font?


I need to add a Google Font for the text and also want to FontAwesome icon fonts to the skin.

@Tanbirzx The question was how to add an external font to a skin. How is your link related at all to answering that question?

@Malyacko I have just given this link for taking some needful sense about webfonts and texts. Thank you

@Tanbirzx The question was how to add a custom external font (!) to a skin (!). Your links do not help answer the question...

thanks @Tanbirzx for your links but unfortunately those links does not help. I have the links to google font and I know how to use in in a website. @Malyacko understands my question properly and I agree with him that those links will not help to what I asked for.


If i repeat my question here again, I need to know the recommended way to use a Google font to a mediawiki skin. I know I can use Common.css and I know there might be extensions to meet the need, but as I am developing a skin I want to add it with the skin. So I do not want to use any external approach to achieve the goal, unless using a extension is the recommended way.
