Using Cufon with ASP.NET and Telerik

Authors

If you haven’t ever tried it, cufon is quite the awesome little font replacer.  If done right, the user wont see any popping.

Cufon requires a CSS selector engine to be loaded.  Now I’ve had a couple calls from users at work saying in FF 2.0 and IE6 they’re not seeing the cufonated fonts.  I’ve always just assumed that the jQuery coming from the Telerik.Web.UI was sufficient…and turns out, IT IS! It’s just the $telerik prefix that was hosing it.

So lets modify the RadScriptManager to load cufon AFTER jQuery.

Booya, cufon now works on all browsers without having to add a reference to another jQuery library.
