I'm trying to export an SVG image, which contains text from illustrator. I want to use it for a website. For SEO and size reasons I don't want to convert typo into vectors. What are the settings I have to use to make it work in all/most browsers. I'm having trouble with Firefox and IE not rendering the fonts correctly.

  • What version of IE are you using? Are you using a web-safe font? If not, did you use @font-face CSS declaration to specify fonts? I would check out this question for using font-face on Firefow How to properly render font-face in Firefox?. And could you please provide and explanation for the link in your post? I am unsure what I am supposed to look at when going to the link. – AndrewH Feb 1 '16 at 16:49
  • IE10 + IE11. I'm using arial so it should not be a problem. Does Illustrator use @font-face CSS out of the box? – Benedikt Feb 1 '16 at 16:53
  • Illustrator does not use font-face out of the box but that shouldn't matter if you're using a web-safe font like Arial. Can you post your SVG code? – AndrewH Feb 1 '16 at 17:08
  • Changed the link to the SVG Illustrator generated for me. power-brands.de/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/Kernkompetenzen.svg – Benedikt Feb 1 '16 at 17:11
  • My guess is that Firefox and IE do not render the font "ArialMT" but I am pretty sure Arial is the same as ArialMT. I would maybe ask this over at stackoverflow. – AndrewH Feb 1 '16 at 18:00
