Cufon Font vs Web-safe; design formatting?

    I really like the look of the Cufon font PT Sans that's supplied with InFocus. However, Cufon doesn't work well with J-Query toggles, hyperlinks and bold text. I don't want to lose the two tone menu/header bar that appears when PTSans (Cufon) is set as the body text font; likewise it would be great to use Cufon for the sub-heading 'Learn to See'. Please can you advise how I could use the default Inherit font yet keep the two tone menu/header bar and soft sub-heading?

    The live example is here;

    and I've created a screenshot with some notes to better illustrate what I mean!

    Thanks for your help; I've been working on the site for about sixteen hours straight now (it's 5.30 here!) and it's a pleasure to design with

    Hello englishphotographer,

    There are issues when using Cufon for your body text. For performance reasons and to not annoy your users it's always best to use a websafe font for your body.

    If you absolutely have to use a custom font for your body text then your best option would be the WP Google Fonts plugin,

    Any suggestions how I can get the two tone menu bar that appears with Cufon without actually using Cufon?

    You can either use Cufon or not use Cufon, there is no inbetween. Another way of embedding custom fonts is to use the WP Google Fonts plugin as seen in my previous post.
