Pagul - Web font

A new font, called Pagul, is developed for Webfonts and released under GPL v3.0 with Font exception This post explain the details and usage of the font in Websites.Since the Unicode font for Sourashtra language recently in use, not every one intalled the font in their system. And also, it is difficult to install the font in a system where one does not have rights to install the font. To overcome this difficulty, web font helps the web page designers to website in a way that user does not need the font to be installed; yet can see the characters/glyph. In short, "Web fonts allow web designers to use fonts that are not installed on the viewer's computer."

This webpage is implemented using web font technology. So user/reader does need to install Sourashtra unicode font to view this page.

To install the font in your machine, download Pagul and install.

This webfont technique supported by
1. Mozilla Firefox 3.6+
2. Google Chrome 5+
3. Opera 7+
4. Internet Explorer 9 (Update IE to latest version since IE8 also not displaying Sourashtra properly and showing some unwanted spaces)

The following section is for Webpage designer:    
To implement this technique to your blog/website, copy & paste the following piece of code to your website (If you CSS file, copy into it; otherwise copy the code to style section)

/* Pagul style section */

@font-face {

font-family: 'pagul';

src: url('');src: local('☺'), url('') format('woff'), url('') format('truetype');


OR You can add the following line in your HTML-HEAD section <link rel='stylesheet' type='text/css' href='' />

Now, whenever you provide the font-family as pagul in your blog/page, the above section will be refered and render properly.

For example if I give <span style="font-family:pagul;">Display in Pagul Font</span> in the code, the words between the <span> tag will be displayed in Pagul font.

Since font is licensed under GPL, anyone can share, distribute and modify the font under GPL V3.0 with Font exception. To download all files related to the webfont, click here
