I have now made the font.

I was thinking that I would need to write the HTML code directly, or maybe have used WebPlus X5 in some way. I did not know that I could use PagePlus X5.

I had not thought at all that I would need to install the woff font on the PC.

William
I didn't know you had WebPlus X5. You could do much the same there, but with the added advantage that you would be able to switch to Source View and add a new character style manually, thus obviating the need to have the font installed on your PC.

I got a dialogue panel saying that the file is either invalid or damaged.

I am running Windows xp, so maybe that is part, or all, of the problem.

WOFF files should work fine on XP, so I don't think your OS is likely to have contributed to the problem, but please see my previous post.

I am beginning to think that that is because a .woff font is not meant to be used from the Fonts folder.

I am thinking that I made a mistake by making StonesWebfont as the .woff web font version of the .ttf font Stones and that I should have made a .woff font Stones so that I had two font files, one .ttf and one .woff, each having the same font name.

You can design one font, and store it as a font project. Then you can export it as .ttf and .woff.
