Okay, I've gone round and round with Typekit support, and am getting the sinking feeling that I've wasted a bunch of time.
It seems, via wordpress.com, that my template on http://ericcpeterson.wordpress.com IS compatible for Typekit fonts.
Here's the DUH for a low-level WordPress user like me, not a programmer, developer or IT person BUT with a bit of html knowledge:
Must I purchase the Custom CSS upgrade in order to use Typekit fonts?
If so, it's not clear that that is the case. AND I would have made several different decisions, AND I would therefore have saved about 20 hours of my life.
If it's not necessary to purchase the custom CSS upgrade, then I am having a problem with Typekit. However, if I DO need to purchase the upgrade to get Typekit to work, PLEASE CONSIDER adding some language to the Typekit intro page on WP that says something like "Typekit uses java -- we don't allow java without a CSS upgrade."
I'm not savvy enough to want to get into CSS, unless I can find exactly where to plug in the new code, get in and get out. I'm willing to do it. I just wish I had known ahead of time that it was necessary.
The blog I need help with is ericcpeterson.wordpress.com.
