    I will change the font, But i am a bit disurbed that I can't use fancier fonts!:thumbs do Why do they have them then????
    Being a stubburn red head, I will still want a different font than the norm.
    As Of now, I would appriciate ALL submiited fonts to me as to which will eventually be there. Please people, something other than the norm,,,, PALEASE? Then within a few days, I will change it. I can't be that selfish to share what I learned from here, and keep it looking SSSSSSSoooooooooo cool only on my end!

    But anyway, Soon I would like to add some pozzas to it. Any suggestions for that aswell would be cool. I have my own ideas, and ALOT of scripts but so far I dunno I Havent tried any yet. Just remember, I am still learning and still applying. Thanks for all my support
    :cheers: :cheers:

    TwizlZone, I'm not sure what you're after?
    If it's a list of non-standard fonts that will be displayed within the browser of users visiting your site............then you are out of luck.

    Not going to happen, too many OSs too many browsers.
    Just have to concentrate on the words you use, because the letters don't mean diddly. Be happy it looks pretty on your end, and figure it as our loss that we don't see it - because most of us won't.

    Keeping the fonts file lean and trim is an old tweaking trick from way back -- like Windows 95 or before. Keeps things running just that much more smoothly, not sure about the current Windows, but the old ones would actually bog down if you got too many fonts - no kidding.

    As I stated before, there is a way to force a font to install to Windows through a script. (At least there used to be, I'm not sure if that is still valid for IE6 - considering the added measures that have been taken for securities sake)

    I have always had that little feature disabled, as I don't want to be gathering unwanted fonts while I surf the web. There are actually stories about folks who had systems bog down and the folks who fixed 'em found hundreds of fonts installed the user didn't even know about.
    OK, maybe that is an urban legend?

    But there are documented font limitations for older Windows OSs just the same. A lot of us folks with older systems keep 'em as lean 'n' mean as possible to try to keep up with the ever increasing demands of everyday computing.
    A bit of old-fashioned tweaking, that may be becoming a lost art:?:

    The fancier fonts are meant really for presentations and documents where "what ya see is what ya get". The web is a different kettle of fish though as ya relyin' on other ppl's systems to interpret your code and if they don't have those necessary fonts (which 98% won't) then they just default to standard font.

    Twizl:- ok when I apologised for trying not to sound negative I got told off (?!) so here goes just a suggestion from what I learnt when I used a Mac and published / edited student newspapers:-

    try checking out your favourite sites and llok at the fonts and the colourings critically.

    If you notice it, most easy to read sites have a pale background and dark text for the main body of text.

    Titles can have fancy fonts but these are best used sparingly for "readability".

    The main text font almost always is "sans serif" i.e. fonts without twiddly bits on the individual letters.

    Try and keep each page to a page.

    Keep the navigation tools/bars/links consistent and simple and easy to reach.

    If in doubt about page width always err on the side of narrower rather than wider. Folks are happier to scroll down than scroll across.

    Hope this helps? :cheers:

    You should also take note that a lot of the fancy-schmancy lettering found in titles, logos, headers and such are in actuality images -- such as the "TweakTown Forums" logo at the top of this page.

    Using that technique, you can display some flashy things and everyone can get to see them (provided they don't have images turned off --- doggone, always a catch isn't there:laugh: )

    Actually, those images can be kept to a pretty minimal filesize, and with a decent connection it can be pretty much invisible that they are images.

    If you look at the first post of this thread, you can see what I'm trying to say;
    http://forums.tweaktown.com/showthre...=&threadid=345

    Notice the swank lettering at the beginning of each line?
    Those are images cunningly placed through the fastidious use of HTML.
    :laugh: did I make the poster sound like an HTML master or what:rolleyes2
