  3. Click the Edit HTML button

  4. Replace the Google Web Font block with the Typekit embed code

    {block:IfGoogleWebFont}
      <link href='http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family={text:GoogleWebFontURL}' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>
    {/block:IfGoogleWebFont}
    
    <!-- with your Typekit embed code: -->
    <script type="text/javascript" src="//use.typekit.net/XXXXXXX.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">try{Typekit.load();}catch(e){}</script>
  5. Replace the font-family declaration with the one from Typekit

    <!-- Change this line: -->
    font-family: '{text:GoogleWebFont}', Georgia, serif;
    
    <!-- To something like this: -->
    font-family: "skolar",serif;
