Hi,

I made a mac website and I made a fancy font (Party LET) for my title, but my friends can only see the title as Arial or Times New Roman. Also, in IE the title is chopped in to 2 lines when in other browsers it's only one. Why is this happening? My son is the only one who can see exactly as it's supposed to be on his firefox. My friends has AOL. One of my friends tested Firefox on her pc and she finally was able to see the title with one line but the fonts are still Arial or Times New Roman, not Party LET. Does anyone understand why this is happening?

Thanks

Stacey

Turn the title into an image so others can see the font. You may have the Party LET font installed on your computer, but I don't have it installed on mine. Arial and Times New Roman are default fonts so that's what everyone is going to have. Since I don't have the Party LET font my browser is going to turn it into Arial so I can still view it.

If the people who are viewing the website don't have the font on their system, they will see a default font rather than the one you intended. In your case it's probably better to create an image file and use it as a banner.

UPDATE: **Eric beat me to this

How do I turn the title into an image? Just give me step by step instructions if possible.

Or if you already have the title on a webpage, just take a quick screenshot of the title (command+shift+4) and use the resulting image instead.

Yes, as then the title would be an image that would look the same on all computers everywhere.
