We have recently developed a website with a strong reliance on Font Awesome as part of it’s design. We’re using the standard implementation with before:content and their supplied CSS.
For some reason Font Awesome isn’t displaying in IE8. I’ve spent quite a few hours troubleshooting and trying various fixes, with no luck.
- Set the mimetype of EOT to application/vnd.ms-fontobject
- Set the mimetype of OTF, TTF to application/octet-stream
- Executed HTML5Shiv after all CSS has been loaded.
- Various attempts to reload the CSS or DOM on page load
Here is the website: http://www.tetakere.org.nz – the Hotlinks box is a good example of Font Awesome
Has anyone got any ideas on other approaches to getting this website to display Font Awesome?
