Does anyone know why my font does not render on some browsers?

The font seems to revert to Arial....

I though this was pretty standard:


body {
margin:0;
background: #f4f4f4 url(../funnelimages/Xbg.png) repeat-x top left;
color: #1a1a1a;
line-height: 1.5em;
font:13px/18px "Lucida Grande","Lucida Sans Unicode",Arial,Verdana,sans-serif;
}

Am I missing something?

On my broswers, IE, FF etc it all works fine but when I take screengrabs from other machines the font doesn't render....

The tags that are used are just normal <p> thanks!

Looks like it is common on Macs but not elsewhere

I think if a font is more than one word, you have to put an underscore between then instead of a space.

No.



To avoid mistakes in escaping, it is recommended to quote font family names that contain white space, digits, or punctuation characters other than hyphens:

body { font-family: "New Century Schoolbook", serif }

<BODY STYLE="font-family: '21st Century', fantasy">
Font family names that happen to be the same as a keyword value ('inherit', 'serif', 'sans-serif', 'monospace', 'fantasy', and 'cursive') must be quoted to prevent confusion with the keywords with the same names. The keywords 'initial' and 'default' are reserved for future use and must also be quoted when used as font names. UAs must not consider these keywords as matching the '<family-name>' type
