    Some script fonts dont show on all machines ?Embed (office 2003 sp1)

    I noticed that a script font, rodolphe, used on my html page images on my computer okay where i have that font, but not on my friends computer. Is there a way of embedding special fonts into an html page like you do when you save a word document. Or how does this work if a machine does not have a particular font.??

    I believe that embedding fonts only works with Word and PowerPoint. That's why the majority of web sites use only the fonts that are most likely to be installed on most computers.

    I'm not really sure of that Jerome. Perhaps someone else may have an answer.

    See Web-safe Fonts at designtutor.com.

    Embedding fonts is possible, see this article, but it comes with an overhead and is not guaranteed to work.

    One could post the font files on their web page to be downloaded and installed, providing that they are NOT copyright protected.
