    Default Overiding Font Choices

    I&#039;m wondering if its possible to overide the font preferences of a selected computer. I know my dad&#039;s computer is set to view all text in Comic Sans or something like that which makes everything look stupid. Is there anyway to override this?<BR><BR>Mat

    Default some links that should help

    Mat, if you specify your font in any way, it will override the browsers default settings. What you have to watch out for is the clients computer MUST have the specified font. There are things that you can do to pretty much control at least what style of font is displayed.<BR><BR>There are some tutorials on this and a lot of other html stuff at:<BR>http://www.htmlgoodies.com<BR><BR>Plus you should check out the extensive CSS tutorial on Webmonkey:<BR>http://hotwired.lycos.com/webmonkey/98/15/index0a.html
