    Font display on website!

    Not sure whether there is an answer to this or not?

    The problem i am having is that i have created a web page with the fonts that i like but not all users can see the same fonts on the site!!! Obviously thsi is due to the fact that i have fonts installed on my laptop that other users don't have!

    Is there a way to setup so that everyone can see the same thing?

    You could just use websafe fonts

    Unfortunately there's no good solution at present, not until Web Downloadable Fonts are more generally supported anyway (see this article for details). Really, your only options are to use one of the web-standard fonts, or to convert the text to images (this only works if it's just used for headings, and even then you'll need to make sure you've got the alt text attributes set).

    if you are determined to use a different font an ideal workable solution is using sIFR or another type of font replacment tech

    Mike Davidson - sIFR

    EDIT

    See here for other alternatives all with positives and negatives
