Noto Font Loader loads the correct Noto font file from Google Fonts depending on the site’s locale and overrides theme's font settings.

== Description ==

Noto Font Loader is a WordPress plugin that applies Noto font to your site. It loads the correct Noto font file from Google Fonts depending on the site’s locale and overrides theme's font settings.

= The Goal =

Most of WordPress themes are designed to display western languages. When I try to use them on Japanese sites, it looks awkward due to lack of proper font settings (these languages need to use a font other than default in order to look cool). So when I met Noto font, I liked the font's concept to cover every Unicode letters.

But the font files are separated for each language's character set. I thought it might be handy if the site could automatically choose which Noto font to use based on the site's locale.

= When To Use =

This plugin might be for you if you are in either of below situations:

* Your site is translated into Chinese, Japanese and/or Korean
* You just want to use Noto font

= Covered Languages =

The plugin currently handles the language-font combinations listed below:

* Japanese - Noto Sans/Serif JP
* Korean - Noto Sans/Serif KR
* Simplified Chinese - Noto Sans/Serif SC
* Traditional Chinese - Noto Sans/Serif TC

These are the languages graduated from [Early Access](https://fonts.google.com/earlyaccess) directory and officially listed in Google Fonts. I intend to update the plugin when the more languages are added in the future.

For all other locales, it uses standard Latin subset (Noto Sans/Serif).

= Settings =

From admin panel, you can choose what style to use from these 4 options:

* Sans-serif
* Serif
* Headers: Serif / Body: Sans-serif
* Headers: Sans-serif / Body: Serif
