To use font icons from FontAwesome we set the document attribute icons with the value font. The default link to the CSS location is https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/font-awesome/4.1.0/css/font-awesome.min.css. We can change the location for the FontAwesome CSS with document attributes.

If we want to use a different CDN to serve the CSS we can set the document attribute iconfont-cdn and set the URI as a value:

:icons: font

// Set new URI for reference to FontAwesome CSS
:iconfont-cdn: //maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/font-awesome/4.1.0/css/font-awesome.min.css

== Sample doc

To reference the FontAwesome CSS from a relative location from our generated HTML page we can first unset the attribute iconfont-remote and set the attribute iconfont-name:

:icons: font

// First unset attribute to remotely link FontAwesome CSS

// Specify name of FontAwesome CSS.
:iconfont-name: fontawesome-4.1.0

// We can optionally set the directory where CSS is stored.
:stylesdir: css

== Sample doc

In the generated HTML source we see the following link element:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/fontawesome-4.1.0.css">
