I would like to implement the La Carte font in my page. I am using Dreamweaver MX 2004 and i am having issues using the font on a certain text! How can i import the La Carte.otf file to my website directory. Could anyone help out?
Web typography is still a bit of a grey area unfortunately. For displaying non-web safe fonts you have several options:
Use standard image-replacement to replace the standard text on the web page with an image showing the fancy text. This is by far the quickest, easiest and most compatible method at the moment but does have its drawbacks such as not being able to select the text
@font-face - with this technique the font file is put on the server and is therefore available if the visitor doesn't have it installed on their computer. This is easy to set up but as it is CSS3 it is only supported by firefox and safari (and therefore chrome). It doesn't work at all in IE and it can be quite slow. There are also a lot of issues around font licensing.
