    importing new fonts into FP (FP2002 (10.2623.2625))

    Does anyone know, please, if it is possible to install new fonts into FP from an external source? I have downloaded some fonts which are sitting in a zip file on my desktop at the moment, but have not been ab le to figure out how to get them into FP. Any help appreciated.

    FP uses the standard system fonts. Unzip the fonts to a folder. Then, Start>Control Panel>Fonts and from the menu bar, File>Install new fonts. Then direct the installation to the folder where you unzipped the fonts and select those that you want installed.

    Be aware that using fonts that your end user does not have installed will require them to download them to be able to see what you intended, otherwise they will see the text in either an alternative font you may have specified within your HTML or what their browser is set for.

    The safest way is to create a graphic image - you can then be sure it is viewed in the way you want it to be.

    Thanks, Leif - I didn't realise that. Graphics are obviously the way to go here.
