So I'm trying to redo my bands myspace page. And I can't for the life of me figure out how I add own my fonts. Is their a generator or something that I can upload the font from my computer and go from there? Or do I need to do the code myself.
This is all greek to me so please bear with me. thanks

Fonts are browser based so you can only influence them with the CSS command "font-family"; you can't absolutely enforce a font on all your visitors. There's no way to push a font down to any computer that visits your page.

There are some supposed alternatives to this issue but they are all hokey and not advisable.

So would I need to save the actual words in the font that I want to use, upload them to say image shack or something, and then put them in the code?

if that's the case then how do you do it?

I'm just trying to get a more professional looking myspace page

No... just use a font that most people have installed. Then list a backup font that looks about the same. Then list a generic font type that covers everything else.

Google "web font families" and "css font-family" for some helpful links.

Why am I wasting my time to reply to another thread (http://codingforums.com/showthread.php?t=172462) with the same question when there’s someone else replying here already? :mad:
