    Font Problems

    Soumit21
      Hello, I have a different font for my general text and different one for my links. The font for the links never works. It always goes to the default font on the browser. The font I put in only works on my computer. Any ideas of what I might be doing wrong or how I can get around this? please and thank you.

          That sounds weird but you need to supply more information
          if css you need
          the HTML <p>PUT text in here</p>
          then change in css like
          p{
          font-size : 20px
          ect}

          same for <a>
          by the sounds of it

            Your visitors will only see fonts that are insalled on THEIR computer.
            Change your font choice to a commonly used font.

                It probably only works on your computer because you've chosen a
                non-traditional font. What font families did you pick?

                  I picked Enviro. It is a non-traditional font. Thanks for all your help. It was such a pretty font. Had to pick an ugly on to make it work properly.

                    Sorry You'd think by 2006, 10 years later (that we mortals got hooked
                    on web pages), more web safe fonts would come around. The original lot
                    are okay but BORING!
