Q&A

Q1:Is there any way I can make sure a font is available on the viewer's computer?
A1: The only way you can be absolutely sure that a font is present on the viewer's machine is to require them to install it. There are browser-specific methods to embed fonts and send them over the Web. Internet Explorer's methods are described at http://msdn.microsoft.com/workshop/author/fontembed/font_embed.asp. Netscape Navigator's information is at http://developer.netscape.com/docs/manuals/communicator/dynhtml/webfont3.htm.
Q2:I indented a line of text with the Indent button. I wanted it to act like a tab acts in my word processing program, but it seems to indent both the beginning and the end of the line.
A2: Oddly enough, there is no way in HTML to tab like in your word processing program. The Indent button actually applies the blockquote tag to the text. This tag, as you noticed, actually indents both the left and the right of the text. The blockquote tag was originally designed for quotes in research type documents. Often Web page developers use tables to format text the way you are attempting to do. You'll learn how to use tables to format your pages in Hour 8, "Create a Table to Aid Page Layout."
