    webfont problems

    im sorry before, im newbie as webprogrammer, and im a new born baby in this forum

    i have problem about webfont, my question :
    1. Is font for web different with font for desktop?
    i have try to include my font, and i have tried @font-face css. but its different with my designer view in photoshop.

    2. Is there web for free font web i could download? i just want to test it, would it be same with my designer's design if i use my own downloaded webfont.


    my designer said he use helvetica neue 37 light condensed. when i search that font name in www.fonts.com it said the file name is HelveticaNeueLTStd-ThCn.
    when i try to use it, it doesn't look same in chrome, its work fine in mozilla firefox.


    (im sorry before if i have wrong word in my thread, i dont really could speak english well. thanks for your all attention, thanks so much)

    If you can't find the exact font and you refuse to try something different; then go with an image replacement technique

    Your friend most likely has way more choices of fonts on his computer than what a service like Font Squirrel has available to the public. You could always take your friend's font and try uploading it to a service like Font Squirrel (but then you are getting into copyright issue and you don't want to get sued for using a font that you don't have legal permission to use).

    If you can't find that exact font available online (paid or free) and really want to use it go with the image replacement technique.
