    Probably not a good thread description lol.

    I know it's possible;

    If I uploaded a "special" font to my website, how would I call that font, using CSS so that the text on my site is defined by that font.... Clear?

    And, assuming anyone knows what I'm on about, what's the negative side of doing such a thing... slow / doesn't load / something else

    Regards,
    Chris

    this can be done, you need to download microsoft weft [searchweb]microsoft weft[/searchweb]

    this converts normal fonts into a special file extension that can be put on the page using css..

    Well, webmonkey and spoono both recommend I use it.. So,

    I'm just trying to create a "handwritten" style of text to my blog.. so it looks more original and a new concept to the way a blog looks, hoefully lol. And the only way I can think of doing that is by using my own font file.. which is a "handwritten" sorta looking one
