    Which are Website Fonts

    Where can I get a list of Website fonts to use in my webpages - The fonts I try to use do not appear to be website friendly, they just turn out as Tiempo or Times Roman or whatever..

    I am hoping to find some Scripts or some other kind of Illumanated or decorative font.

    Re: Which are Website Fonts

    Different machines and its individual programs will come with different fonts installed, so there is no single list of default fonts that every user will have.

    This link should give you some help though http://www.microsoft.com/typography/fonts/default.aspx

    Re: Which are Website Fonts

    I am aghast that in this day and age, that we are limited to only a handful of fonts. I'm new to this, but designed a simple website using Chaucer.ttf font. I read a bit about embedding fonts, but it seems that is an older technology that is not reccomended these days.
    So there is no way to upload my font to the server, so that users will be able to view my webite using Chaucer? They will only be able to see it if they have it installed on thier own PC?
    The parts of my site that I want to use Chaucer on, are the pages titles and some of the hyperlinks. So perhaps I should create drawing objects instead of trying to use text for these?

    Thanks for any ideas, cheers.

    You've got it in one Chazcon, if you really want to use the fonts you'll have to create a small image with your font on for your titles. Or, you could just try a different font?

    Yes, that's what I ended up doing, using PhotoShop, and it looks great.

    I would recommend using Arial, Helvetica (which is the Apple version of Arial) or Verdana. Sans-serif fonts look better aliased and are easier to read on the internet generally. That's what they were designed with in mind. For regular text you can use these font at size 9 - 12.

    I hope this helps!

    Also, I forgot to mention, almost all computers have these fonts so you wouldn't have to embed them.

    Is it recommended to embed fonts?
