    Smile JavaScript Font identifyer?

    Is there any possible way that i can scan someones computer with JS to see if they have a certain font? Similar to the JS Plug-in scanner except this is with a font. Help would be appreciated...

    Not that I know of. Why not use CSS? If they don't have the font you want, you can make it go to an alternate font instead...

    So specify those fonts by name, and then let the other fonts display when those fonts are not installed. This can be done in CSS. Or you could use a graphic file instead of text. JavaScript cannot detect whether a font is installed or not...

    I always thought ma'am meant "madam," and I always thought that was for women. In any case, I'd prefer not to be called that. But suit yourself. The thread gets off-topic at this point. I must go now...
