Marc, Microsoft has tools on their typography website, for the developer to embed fonts, into your websites, so those sites can be viewed with fonts, that you desire. http://www.microsoft.com/typography/default.asp visit the page above, now sure, how Netscape and other browsers translates!

Where are the fonts dear OS and browser developers? Do web designers still have to struggle with not even a handful of available system fonts which work for MacOS X and Windows? It would be nice to have a couple of font families for web designers and IT developers to build appealing web sites and rich content web pages in the near future. I think most web designers would like to work with font families such as Sans, Serif, Slab-Serif etc... : - Regular - Extended - Condensed What would be really innovative once in a while would be the possibility to embed ones own fonts such as the TrueDoc technology developed by Bitstream and supported by Netscape browsers some time ago. I really don´t understand why this extraordinary technology has never become a standard on the internet!? I believe the browser battle never gave this font embedding technology a real chance! I think CSS offers many useful color and textstyle features and many web designers and IT developers would be grateful to work efficently with CSS attributes to create typography rich web pages. But where are the fonts??? We need more typography on the web dear OS and browser developers! Got the message!? I hope so ... graphically yours, Marc Kleín - PXL Operator Pixel:Industries PXL Design Portal The art of visual communication http://www.pixel-industries.com -- For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archive of thelist go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt !
