I am using FrontPage2003 When I did the first website it was FrontPage 
2000 that was when they couldn't read the font. I think I used Edwardian 
font. They said it just looked like gibberish.  What I have read and 
what  others have offered  is to use Sans Serif. Your 2cents seem to 
make the most sense.
