Typekit & speed

Some fonts (ITC Galliard, a serif font, specifically in the header and signage) are loaded from remote third-party servers. This technique is causing 700-millisecond to 1-second delays on some pages. We can’t fix this. We recommend your designers find alternative fonts and eliminate Typekit usage. A good choice would be Georgia serif websafe font. A design compromise.
