Hiya, i have finally got my website working but the font is different when i view the site from other peoples computers?

The website is www.indigohairdesigns.com (http://www.indigohairdesigns.com) and the font throughout should be "Kirsten ITC" which is almost like a handwriting style, but it looks like it's changed to times new roman????

Any ideas why this could be??

Hi, it shows up as roman on my screen, on the front page only. Try highlighting the words in that text box & change the font again, save page as, then re-publish. Also when you are viewing the page in your browser, pres ctrl+f5 to refresh your page. You may have the old page in your computer that may have had some roman text on it, if thatís what you started with?.

Please note that the browser will modify the fonts in other people's computers if they don't have that font installed. That's why it is advisable to only have web safe fonts in your pages.

Windows likes Verdana, Arial, Times, and a few of the more common ones. Anything else will be changed on users computers to whatever their default is.

If you want specific text on say a header or title, you should save it as a*.gif and then upload the new image to your page. Not recommended for large sections though.
