Hi,

I am creating a website with a font that quite a few people don't have on their systems. Is there anyway to embedd it or call it from the server? Using HTML and CSS. I know flash can embedd but this doesn't help.

Anyone got any suggestions?

Thanks

The easiest way I know how to overcome that is to make the text an image. Granted, that can create problems with site size and load times, but it is a sure way to make sure that your font is displayed even if it isn't the best way.

I would recommend staying with "web-safe" fonts for your main content and using your specialezed text as an image for areas you want to highlight.

i agree probably the easiest/quickest.

you should look more into what you can style with css though

e.g (the letter-spacing is a lovely wee tag)
color:#990000;
font-size:18px;
font-weight:400;
letter-spacing: -0.05em;
