is there anyway to put code into your html to make sure that the font used is one that is uploaded to my server...or do I just have to leave it up to the persons computer to hopefully have the font?

i think you just upload the font to your server, then use the "font face=*UploadedFontName.fontextension*" test it out, i could be wrong.

upload the font to the server, to the directory that the page is viewed in.

then <.Font Face = UploadedFont.extension.>

or create a "file_name.css" file
then put
Code:
body {
   font-family: font_name;
   }
then in the html file, inside the <head> tag put
Code:
<link href="file_name.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

The Web Embedding Fonts Tool 'WEFT', lets Web authors create 'font objects' that are linked to their Web pages so that when an Internet Explorer user views the pages they'll see them displayed in the font style contained within the font object.
Just stick with standard web-fonts. Otherwise you're excluding Windows users who don't use IE, FreeBSD Users, Mac Users, BeOS Users, Linux Users, and all other none-windows operating system users.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
