Font families


Recommended Posts

I'm writing a webpage for my band which uses a font-family called flexure in its logo. I want to encorporate the font in the page but this only works for users who already have the font on their computer, which isn't many as it is not a common font. For users who don't already have the font the browser just defaults (normally to arial).Is it possible to put the font file on the server and then reference it? or is there some other way around this problem?I know I could use images for the elements in question, however I've encountered other problems with this approach, see http://w3schools.invisionzone.com/index.php?showtopic=1899

If you rule images out of the question then you can't, just switch the font to one that most people have (e.g. Lucida Console).
