In Windows, if you have the fonts installed, you would use <font face="Kristen ITC">message</font> and it would show using that font.

I tried that with one of my installed fonts in Puppy, and no difference.

You live and learn, huh...from what i've been reading, markofkane, it seems that not all fonts are compatible with all OSes, so perhaps that's the problem..?

Knowing squat about the ins and outs of the properties of glyphs and typefaces, i don't understand why some will work in Win or Mac but not in Linux...i've just come across a site - http://scripts.sil.org/cms/scripts/page.php?site_id=nrsi&item_id=Gentium_download - that has downloads for one of its fonts, (among others), packaged in .zip format for Win, Mac and 'many Gnu/Linux' distros, + a special Debian/Ubuntu package, so they must have different quirks for different platforms.

What browser are you using?

That works for me in Puppy in all mozilla based browsers, and I think Opera/Konqueror/any major browser should work too. Dillo might not - I'm not sure.
You need to get the font name exactly right though.

People after fonts may also want to look at
Puppy needs a font pack

I'm not sure if there was much else there of use, but I did post a link to a page where you could see all the (free) fonts included in Debian.

Color works and size works.

Maybe I'm wrong, lol. Laughing


If your using Seamonkey or a packaged firefox, most of the time in the its disabled for websites to use there own fonts, you have to enable it in the browser and then restart the browser.
Seamonkey --> edit -->Preferences -->appearance-->fonts

I was looking for fontforge (I had used it with good results prior to leaving Windoze). Lo and behold, I found it -- all ready-made in a nice little pet.
Thank you so much!
These forums have been invaluable in my transition to Linux and to Puppy.

What follows is my attempt to shed some light on browsers and web page fonts (if anyone cares):

Markofkane:
Thanks. It seems that font type HTML won't work in Puppy Linux, it seems all fonts look the same on webpages. Color works and size works. Maybe I'm wrong, lol. Laughing.

Markofkane:

Ttuuxxx:
Suggested to markofkane how he could change Preferences in Seamonkey to make any font appear on web pages. The only caveat to this is if you build a web page using a font that is not installed on the visitors HD then their browser will use the font selected in their browser’s preferences.

The screen shot in ttuuxxx’s post shows six possible font settings. AFAIK these options are typical of all browsers. The fonts used for these setting however are dependant on the OS used by the web site visitor. In my experience people rarely change these settings but YMMV.

See: Complete Guide to Pre-Installed Fonts in Linux, Mac, and Windows

See: 8 fonts you probably don’t use in css, but should

Incidentally Font tags have been depreciated by the W3C in favor of CSS. See: http://www.w3schools.com/HTML/html_fonts.asp for alternatives to font tags.
