Frequently Asked Questions
Can I change anything besides the headlines?
Yes, but it takes a little more work on your part. To change the font on something other than a headline you need to wrap the text in a “class” tag. For example, if you are want to change some text to the font, “Alba Super” you would do something like this:
<div class=”alba_super”>Your text here</div>
Depending on your stylesheet is set up, you may have to play with this method a bit to get it working.
Isn’t Font Burner Just a watered down version of sIFR
Do my headlines have to align left?
Yes. If you want center aligned, right aligned, or justified headlines send us a note requesting that feature. As of right now we plan on keeping our headlines left aligned.
Can I change the colors of the fonts?
Yes. By default Font Burner will deliver all fonts in black, but there are a limited number of colors available besides black. Currently, you can use black, gray, or white. We will be adding more color options in the near future. To learn how to change your font color read these instructions.

What happens if the Font Burner website goes down?
If for some reason the Font Burner site goes down your fonts will default to the fonts specified in your site’s stylesheet. There should never be a time where your headlines would disappear.
Can I use fonts not available through Font Burner?
If there is a font that you are dying to use on your site that isn’t available on Font Burner please send us an email. We are constantly looking for fonts to add to our site. If you just can’t wait for us to add your favorite font, you can take a look at sIFR (that’s what makes Font Burner work) and learn to do it yourself.
Do you host copyright protected fonts?
No. Commercial fonts (the one’s you have to buy!) usually try to restrict the free distribution of sIFR fonts. Whether this is within their legal rights is up for debate, but Font Burner tries to honor the wishes of font owners. For that reason Font Burner will not host sIFR files of commercial fonts.
