I'm having trouble getting this @font-face to work...frustrating. Does anyone have any ideas? I'm working locally. My code:




<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">

<html xmlns="">




<link rel="stylesheet" href="stylesheet.css" type="text/css" charset="utf-8" />


<title>Untitled Document</title>






<div class="sanchezregular">Why won't this font work??</div>

    > to put the font folder where the CSS file is located


    If your fonts are in "font" folder, the url should be src: url('font/Sanchez-Regular-webfont.eot'); (Relative to the css file.)

    Also, @font-face does not preview correctly in IE9 from a local file by default. 


    You can switch to IE8 mode to see if the font rule is written correctly.


    It will preview in Firefox without issue too.
