Issue with SharePoint 2010 and Web Fonts

I will spare you the drama and get right to it.  SharePoint forces IE8 mode via this tag in the master page:

<meta http-equiv=”X-UA-Compatible”content=”IE=8″/>

If you are trying to use web fonts with SharePoint 2010, you are likely having an issue getting them to display.  That tag above is the reason.

If IE8 is a requirement, then you’ll need a new solution.  Otherwise, change the IE8 metatag to Edge.  Edge defaults to the most recent version.

<meta http-equiv=”X-UA-Compatible”content=”IE=Edge″/>
