Enforcing Font

Enforcing Font

Enforcing Font

I've specified a font and needless to say it works just fine on the computer used to generate the web page but when I view it from a Vista PC, the font reverts to Times or something. How do you carry a font across to the target machine?

RE: Enforcing Font

I really can't say how to enforce it, but it may be that the Vista machine doesn't have that font on it??

Just my $.02.

RE: Enforcing Font

It appears that normally if a font is not present on the target machine then a default is substituted. So far all I can see is to insert a font-familiy which would try and choose another font but a) I'm surprised you can't carry across a font by some process and b) Frontpage doesn't seem to help in this matter.

RE: Enforcing Font

I really don't know if that "a)" could be done or not, but it may be possible.

To keep it simple though, I would just use a Windows© font that is already on the other computer.

Just my $.02.
