    Fonts!

    ScottyH07
      Hello there, this is my first ever post on this forum.

      If possible I need abit of guidance on how to do something with fonts on a website I am creating.

      My problem is that I have a company name at the top of my page in a certain font, but when others see the website on their computers they see a different font, I know that this is beacuse they dont have the font of the company name installed on their computer!

      Can anyone help and maybe tell me how to resolve this issue?

      Thanks,
      Scott H 07

          You'd want to create a graphic of the company logo and place that were you have the text now.

              Yes but there is a way to do it how I asked?

              You know anymore about that Joey?

              Thanks

                Use a graphics editor. DW is an HTML authoring system, not a graphics
                editor. You would need something like PaintShop Pro, or Fireworks, or
                Photoshop....

                  Yep, at the moment the only ways you can do it is to create a graphic for your logo. If that is the only place where you need to have that font then that is the easiest way. If you need to use the font in other places you might want to look at flash replacement technique called sIFR. There is information out there about how to use it - just google it. Other than that you might be thinking of font embedding. This hasnt' really taken off but you might want to read this article about it

                    Don't bother. It's a waste of time since it's so poorly supported.

                      Without using a graphic? No, as several people already posted. :-)
