    As the W3Schools page above states: you should NOT use the <font> tag, since it is deprecated in HTML4 and removed from HTML5.

    The right way to do it is using CSS:

    Edit: If you don't know how to properly insert CSS, this page should give you a good overview:

    I got a css page inserted and it works. I'm supposed to use font-family, but when I try to insert a font its not working.I tried testing it on this tryit editor on the w3 schools page but still couldn't get it to show the font I chose.

    I tried amazone bt , lucida handwriting , kaufmann bt, but the text doesn't change.

    To build a great and satisfying web page. You have to learn HTML and CSS. 9 books and I was building web pages with a simple text editor(gedit). Learning a WYSIWYG HTML editor, isn't really learning how to make web pages. You just learning a cheat way(half *** way) doing things. Bluefish is a good editor; but knowing the HTML codes will help anybody in the long run.

    Cheat with templates at any free web hosting site. That's how I really got started. Then I realize all these helping tools have there limitations. I couldn't do this, I couldn't do that. So I learn HTML picking up books and read them. Now, I'm limitless of what I can do. Go to; http://www.000webhost.com/ use there free templates and build a simple webpage. Then sit down and read a HTML book.

    You never can control what it looks like at the clients end. You have to have the fonts available on the remote machine or it will render the default font. There is always a default configured in the browser. Look at the "Content" tab on the preferences page in Firefox.

    Do you have these fonts install on your PC. It can't render if these fonts aren't install on your PC. You browser settings for fonts(defaults) might be the case also.

    how do I get some of these fancy looking fonts like the ones here http://www.fontsquirrel.com/fontface
    to work then , its all dependent on what I set firefox to? I don't see a lot of the fonts listed in the link I provided in the firefox preferences.

    if I wanted to use portcullion , for example , and its not listed in firefox it will just display the default?
    what's the point in having all those fonts if you never know how its going to display when someone clicks on your page?

    You can add any font to your browser. If a font isn't listed, then you add it in. Then you can view your font's on your webpage the way you want too.

    But see, the person on the other end. Have to have the same font's install in there browser. And have there browser set to view the font's as is on that webpage. Or everything is just view on a default font set in there browser.

    To have them view the font's as you attended it to. Have all the fonts as a image. Just like the link you provided. There images not text fonts. That's how you are viewing them on that web page. http://www.fontsquirrel.com/fontface

    Re: If you use Bluefish Editor please reply

    Now, imagine me visiting your web site but I do not like what it looks like because I do not see the page as you see the page. I do not have the same fonts installed on my PC as you have on your PC. So, my web browser will substitute a font on my machine for the one that your have chosen in the web page.

    It is best to chose fonts that are available to most people and then offer alternative fonts if the first choice is not available.

    This is what CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) are for. CSS is a page that the web browser reads to find out what fonts and what styles you want the text and stuff to be rendered in. It is where you set the alternatives.

    For example:

    {
    font-family: FreeSans, frutiger linotype, arial; font-size: 100%;
    }
    In a cascading style sheet will tell the browser to first use the FreeSans font and if that is not available then to use frutiger linotype and if that is not available to use arial.

    That is how it is done.

    Books are written on this subject.

    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.
