I'm using the FUTURA font for my web page. The problem is people online will see the webpage with a default font if they don't have it on their computer. How do i correct this type of problem??

If you want to use your font just for a title or a few headings then i would suggest using images, however if you are planning on using it as the main font on your site then you could embed it, here a couple of tutorials ---> <a href="http://hotwired.lycos.com/webmonkey/design/fonts/tutorials/tutorial2.html"> Webmonkey</a> // <a href="http://www.netmechanic.com/news/vol3/css_no15.htm">NetMechanic</a> or try our good old friend <a href="http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&ie=UTF-8&q=embedding+fonts&btnG=Google+Search">google</a>

isthistakenyet? - Can you please change your footer to comply with our
rules as posted in the announcements forum? Footer images are to be no
larger than 468x100 and no bigger than 6kb. With an image 100px tall, no
text is allowed. If you make the footer image 60px high, you can add 1 line
of text. If you use all text, the text should be no more than 3 lines, with a
total of 2 links.

Sorry to pick, but we all have to follow these rules. Thanks.

You could embed the font or use stylesheets to make them use a different font if they don't have FUTURA. Try something like:

Code: [ Select ]
.body
{
font-family: futura, impact, sans-serif;
}
  1. .body
  2. {
  3. font-family: futura, impact, sans-serif;
  4. }


This code will first look for Futura, then Impact, and then, Sans-Serif.
