Okayhere's something. If you aren't using custom CSS, but a tweeked"theme", is there any way to add fonts to it? Like a really nice scyptlooking font? There aren't many choices ..if any really. Just curious,but not a big deal if I'm kinda stuck with the blah looking text I havenow.

I am pretty sure I'm right here but I am by no means an expert ... here goes ...

While you can specify the font to use in either HTML (even 4.x) or CSS code, you cannot rely on the viewer to have that font.  Most people have the most common fonts but someone could decide to remove or replace them.

In CSS, you could use the FONT object & use properties like "font-family".

However, no matter how you code it, if the font you specify is not present on the reader's computer then the user's browser's default font will be used.

You could always provide the font file (royalty-free of course) on your site so visitors could download & install it -- caveat that with a "Use at your own risk!" statement.

I'm not one to give Microsoft many nods but their write-up here is not bad.

I like this site's CSS info.

lolThank you, but you are talking about changing the Font in CSS...I'm notusing it. That's why I said I was using a Theme, and will probably getstuck with the blah text. I went the easy..less confusing myCSS/HTML abilites are very limited.
 Thanks for the reply though, but CSS wont work for I am NOT using it lol.

Are you wanting to change the font in specific places or throughout the entire page?
