Include the following code for all CSS text style definitions (p tag used here as example):

p {
 text-rendering: optimizelegibility;
 -moz-font-feature-settings: "kern" 1;
 -moz-font-feature-settings: "kern=1";
 -ms-font-feature-settings: "kern" 1;
 -o-font-feature-settings: "kern" 1;
 -webkit-font-feature-settings: "kern" 1;
 font-feature-settings: "kern" 1;  }

If for some reason you’re not using OpenType webfonts (OTF, WOFF, EOT), use Kern.js to kern your headline type. (Example here)
