TypeSelect: selectable custom fonts on the web, controlled via CSS and Jquery

TypeSelect is a JavaScript-based solution for using selectable custom fonts on the web.

It combines the power of typeface.js, jQuery, the canvas, toDataURL, CSS background properties & real overlayed text to accomplish this feature.


TypeSelect is very easy to understand & implement. It is totally controlled via CSS & no server-side files are required.

It has support for double/triple-click selections, UTF-8 characters & gracefully degrades in IE6.

On the other hand, currently, it has some limitations like unselectable text in IE, not being able to use :hover or line breaks & few more.

Requirements: jQuery, Typeface.js
Compatibility: All Major Browsers (with some limitations)
