How do you use the Fonts I created to be visable on website?

After I create my own fonts, I like it to be viewable on my website. How does a visitor install my fonts so they can view the characters I created? I do not want to create bitmaps, but want a workable, viewable page on the web.

I don't want my website viewable in english when the page loads, but the visitor is able to download or view the font (language) that was created.

Is this possible?

Hi dingospeedz

You might be asking the wrong forum about this as our focus is on the design of fonts, not the use of fonts.

My knowledge is that unless the font is installed on the user machine it will not be seen as you want.

Most acceptable is using PDF where everything is under the control of the designer. The obvious downside is the size of pages and length of time to load; but Adobe (among others) has released some "speed up" features.

I have not done this myself but:
google "dynamic fonts"

set css style sheet
P { font-family: "New Century Schoolbook", Times, serif }
and <p>paragraph will be displayed in New Century Schoolbook</p>
