    Okay, dude, you've asked a few questions where you want someone to do it for you. That's not how a forum works. You can get general advice and maybe a bit of code if you've taken something most of the way and you're stuck, but expecting someone to do something for you for free without the promise of anything in return is too much to ask. It also doesn't help you learn anything in the end, as you're getting everyone to do everything for you. So that's the general bit of advice.

    The specific bit of advice is that you'd need the original font, and you'd have to take it over to cufn - fonts for the people to get your font generated. Since those are non-standard characters, you'd have to figure out which glyphs you'd need to generate from the font. I would guess, and this is a pure guess on my part, that you'd need the Latin and Cyrillic glyphs. All would work for sure, but it would generate a massive .js file and isn't smart. So you'll have to figure this one out using the tool and the font, and this isn't something anyone's going to be able to help you with anyway because the vast majority of people won't have those two fonts.

    Mate , you really helped me many times and really thank you very much for spending your time to help me and to learn me how to solve some of problems.
    But do you know why I am asking for help , some1 just to code it for me ? Well first of all when i opened this JS file of font , i saw many many numbers and i dont understand anything from this , this part is not in my experience, and i started with learning web design on uCoz services , and there forums works different , if you ask some1 there for help , he will give you finished code of that what you need + he will explain you how did he do it and whats inportant.
    But here forums work different , i see you`r trying to explane me and learn me how to code myself and i am thankful for that.

    btw , i downloaded software FontLab Studio and i tryed to add the letters to the Expletus Sans font , i found ttf format and i can open it with this software , and there are already the letters that i need , but in software it looks fine , but when i use it on site it comes out different , i dont understand whats wrong.

    That's cool that you understand that I'm not just being lazy, but trying to help you help yourself.

    Again, in this case you don't have the right glyphs. You're not going to find someone to code this for you for the simple reason that the JS font file is generated by that site I showed you. You have to upload the file to that site, select the right glyphs, and have the .JS file generated. That's how Cufon works and what allows you to generate the various fonts. You don't code anything at all in this case.

    Okay i used the site u gave me to generate ttf into js , and i did it but the letters " č ć ž đ š " again didnt loaded.
    I dont know whats wrong now.

    What did i do here cufn - fonts for the people >

    1) I uploaded : Regular , Bold , Italic , Bold italic . fonts , so 4 of them.
    2) I chacked Uppercase , Lowercase , Numerals , Basic Latin and Latin extended-A

    So Basic latin becouse of basic letters and Latin extended-A becouse of the letters that i need " č ć ž đ š "

    So i chacked "The EULAs of these fonts allow Web Embedding (without Adobe Flash)" too

    I used option "
    No thanks, use the font's own value " at "Scale the font to the following size"

    And again the letter " č ć ž đ š " wont display at my site , i dont know why ? Do you have any idea mate ?

    Btw can u explane me this to what i wrote in previous post >

    btw , i downloaded software FontLab Studio and i tryed to add the letters to the Expletus Sans font , i found ttf format and i can open it with this software , and there are already the letters that i need , but in software it looks fine , but when i use it on site it comes out different , i dont understand whats wrong.

    As far as that first question goes, I don't have the slightest idea, unfortunately. It could be a corrupt font file. It could be that it displays differently inside of a web page. It could be...well, I don't know what it could be because I've never used that font before.

    As far as the Cufon thing goes, try using All Glyphs. It's not recommended, but if the character is there and it can be embedded the way you want it to, it'll work. If it works, then you just have to figure out which glyph set(s) contain(s) your characters. If it doesn't, you'll need to find a different font.
