Server-based font with absolute URL won't 'show'.

Recommended Posts

Hi-I modified the example here: http://www.w3schools.com/cssref/css3_pr_font-face_rule.aspand it now resides here:http://home.pipeline.com/~datapool/EuroStyleFont-Test2.htmlBut the Eurostile font is NOT displayed by Firefox (8.0, 3.6.24 etc.).Instead I get Times-Roman whatever.Any ideas? Thanks for the help,BillPS, I will get to the MS EOT-format issue after I solve this.

A couple of things I noticed that are different1. .TFF is uppercase instead of lower case.2. It says to Include a font file somewhere on your server, and refer to it with CSS:

  • src: url('Sansation_Light.ttf')

If the font file is located at a different domain, use a full URL instead:

  • src: url('http://www.w3schools.com/css3/Sansation_Light.ttf').

since it is at your domain you should use the first example. I don't know if because the font is copyrighted if that makes a difference. It will be interesting to see the responses. best of luckdink

Thanks for your help.The font - with uppercase file extensions - isinstalled on two, local PCs and works fine.It is a private font - not available from Google but Fonts.com(my 2007 Vista laptop has it dated 2003). The full URL 'pointer' is to a testbed and not the final website. Still I thinkthe browser should be able to find it given the 'PATH'. TBC, Bill
