Cufon in IE8

I don’t use Cufon much these days, I prefer to use @font-face if possible.  I still use it from time to time though (say what you like, it does render the fonts absolutely beautifully) and of course I sometimes have to work on sites which have employed it.

This is just a quick post because I came across an unusual situation this morning – a site which was failing to render menu items in Cufon in IE8 only.  IE7 and IE9 were fine, and allt he other fonts were displaying fine in IE8 – just this menu that was failing to.

Found the solution in this Drupal forum thread .  Added the following CSS to the IE8 conditional stylesheet and all was well again;


.cufon {
visibility: visible !important;
}
