Thanks for the response. I’m trying to eliminate FA completely, in order to improve page load times; FA fonts take 1 GB of bandwidth per day (though there are free FA CDNs) and the TTFB seem to be high for font files when loading from AWS Cloudfront.
If eliminating FA is a difficult thing to do .. involving core theme modification in several files, then I’d better leave it the way it is right now.
If your method can help reduce the file size then that would be great. Every website/theme is using FA these days… but may be I’m old school 🙂
