Have a look at the following technologies:
http://www.microsoft.com/typography/...ame=%20&fsize=
http://www.truedoc.com/webpages/intro/index.html

These create downloadable fonts that only work with MSIE and NS/Moz.

First thanks Rich to reply.
I see WEFT but it require to be WEFT installed on every client computer.
So what is the benifet of WEFT (9.26 mb space). Instead of this why not i instal font file (.ttf) which is about 200 kb.

i also see: http://www.truedoc.com/webpages/. realy good. I have Arabic like font, how can i develop my on PFRs of that font.

Any idea?

If i am going wrong then plz show me straight line.

Waiting for your answer.

Thanks
Burhan

Actually WEFT doesn't require the WEFT program to be installed on every client computer (wouldn't be a very feasible solution if it did) it creates downloadable fonts from various font files that work with IE and uses the CSS @font-face notation to reference the font. It does however only work with IE, so IE must be installed on the client computer. All you have to do is use the wizard to create a downloadable font (a .eot file), upload it to your server and reference the font file with @font-face. The wizard will provide the necessary CSS to do this. The other solution at truedoc.com will only work on Netscape/Mozilla and uses a different method of referencing the font but the concept is the same.

See:

Rich

hi rich:

I understand what u want to say. Thanks a lot.....

But i have a problem with WEFT. I am trying to show Arablic characters in web page. There are about 200 characters in Arabic.
When font (.ttf) is instaled on the computer and i use that font then it is working properly. i.e every (33 to 255) character is shown correctly.

Now when i use .eot , first 126 characters are shown correctly and 161 to 255 are not shown, it shows a small rectangle instead of character.

How can i show characters (161 to 255) using .eot?

r u understand my question??

Burhan
