how do i make a font in css, i see these css files that have 5 different fonts in them and it looks like one i've never seen, does the css file combine all those fonts? and if so, how can i know what will look good?
also, what i mainly want the css for is to have background images that dont move with the text arrows. can someone tell me how to do that? or iff i can do it without css?
If you have seen a web page display a font that is not installed on your system, the author could be using Embedded fonts. This is a couple of systems, like Embedded OpenType and TrueDoc, but they only work for some browsers. I never tested the technology myself, because it seems like a huge waste of time for what it gives you, but you could read about it here: http://hotwired.lycos.com/webmonkey/...tutorial2.html
Not all browsers are good. Some of them go bad.
Not long ago, one of them went as bad as you can go. His hame was I.. I... Well, people usually say that he is a browser That Must Not Be Named.
That browser killed many of our best coding conventions. It twists features. It knows how to counter-bug any of our designs. It is in possesion of a group of supporters so large that no other browser may stand up to it and live.
But now there is a hope.
Yes, I have seen sites that have embedded fonts, used via CSS and out of interest the Cascading Style Sheets, Level 2 revision 1 is in favour of deprecating such a method and waiting until CSS-3 hits the road when theoretical things like SVG could be used as a CSS WebFont reference base.
