  3. Load custom font

This example loads a custom font file. Preload tag ensures the request fetching the resource is raised as soon as possible to improve user experience. In addition, font-display and unicode-range attributes are used to optimise performance.

<!-- Use preload tag in the header to prioritise font request -->
<link rel="preload" href="path/to/the/Font-File.woff2" as="font">

    @font-face {
        font-family: "Font";
        font-style: normal;
        font-weight: 400;
        src:    url(fonts/Font-File.eot);
        src:    local('Font'), /* Get the local font file if available */
                url(fonts/Font-File.woff2) format("woff2"), /* Preloaded in the header */
                url(fonts/Font-File.woff) format("woff"),
                url(fonts/Font-File.eot#iefix) format("eot");
        font-display: optional;     /* Prevent reflows */
        unicode-range: U+000-5FF;   /* Load Latin glyphs only */
