Fingers of Fury!

I'm trying to use a gothic type of font in the welcome message - so I wrote the words in Word, and in Notepad -- and copied them to the Weclome page --- they all transformed back to Verdana.

In fact, no matter what font I pull from the drop down font menu, all I get displayed is Verdana

Any suggestions on what I need to do?

You need to just accept Veranda as the One True Font of the universe!

Actually, as I'm typing this post, I noticed there are no Fonts or Sizes in the drop down boxes, so it must be bugged atm.

Switch to HTML mode ( at the bottom) and where you want the font, type: <font face=Gothic> YOUR MESSAGE </font> (use the font's name you want in place of Gothic).

Example: Connecticut

                Century Gothic

In the following examples, I copied over from Word and this is the code it used:

      Letter Gothic

    <span style="FONT-SIZE: 12pt; FONT-FAMILY: 'Letter Gothic'">Letter Gothic</span>


    <span style="FONT-SIZE: 12pt; FONT-FAMILY: Runner">Runner</span>

        ITC Avant Garde Gothic

    <span style="FONT-SIZE: 12pt; FONT-FAMILY: 'ITC Avant Garde Gothic'">ITC Avant Garde Gothic</span>

(I removed the Font Color from the HTML, black on black is hard to read)

Good luck and I hope that helps.
