And have them with the "smooth" style?.
What the fuck is a Photoshop font? It's a fucking font.
I Mean If You Slice Them And Use Them As Images (Assuming That They Are Using The Setting You Want)
But In Terms Of Rendering The Font A Certain Way (Using Code) I Don't Think It's Possible
No. In order for a font to display on someone's browser they have to have that font installed on their computer.
WTF is a photoshop font?
He means fonts you use in photoshop.
yes, if they have that font. otherwise it will just show as their default font. and none of this smooth crap. it's bad practice to use uncommon fonts though.
Is There A Reason You Capitalize The First Letter Of Every Word?
Yes it is. I know how to do it. (even if the user doesn't have the font)
You have to generate an image for the font though, and this wouldn't be practical for much of anything other than a font site letting users test fonts.
You mean fonts?
@ the stupidity
Yea. I was trying to explain what he meant by what he said.
you worry about design waaay too much. Fucking get some decent content and you'll start to get more visitors(whenever you go live again)
I guess if you're really intent on having a specific font. . . you won't be able to do the "Smooth" thing unless that happens to be what the font looks like per default anyways. . .
But in your 'about this site' (or whatever) section, have the font there available for download (as long as that's legal. . a free font not one you paid for or got off a torrent) and say you recommend the site to be viewed in the font.
This is what Font Families are good for. Say your special font you want is called "greddy"
font-family: "greddy", arial, sans-serif
Now, anyone who has the greddy font installed on his/her computer, going to your site will see that font. But someone who doesn't have the font, will see an arial font. Also any characters not covered by the greddy font will show up in arial. And if for some forsaken reason the person doesn't even have an arial font, everything will show up in the browser's most default sans-serif font.
I typed that up on the fly, any of you CSS experts go ahead and correct, if my dumb ass messed that up. . but you get the general idea.
This is the truth. This site of his has had no content for months, and he even took it down to develop the new one.
who the fuck takes a site down while developing a new version.
Thanks and to those who helped, letting my coder work on it. And most likely going to use fixed images for some of the text I need.
I just recommended sIFR, and instead of doing research on it or looking it up, you've decided on fixed images. Awesome.
No I'm looking into it right now, before I make my coder a call. Going with fixed if nothing works, so far, I'll prob do sifr looking at it now.
sifr will work...and it's accessible too
