Chapter 26. Embedded Font Technology > Using Embedded Fonts

26.1. Using Embedded Fonts

Although the two embedded font technologies differ at the detail level, the general process for creating and importing them is essentially the same:

  1. Specify the font document by name in your HTML document using the <font face> tag or the font-family property in CSS1.

  2. Use a special font-embedding tool to create the downloadable font file(s) for your document (note, you need to have the font installed on your machine). The tool compresses the font shapes into a very small file and adds some security features.

  3. Include information in the HTML document that links it to the font file.

  4. Upload the HTML documents and the compressed font files to your server. If you are using TrueDoc Dynamic Fonts, you need to configure your server to recognize the new font MIME type.

  5. The users' 4.0 browser will display the text in the font you've chosen. The font will be anti-aliased to smooth out the jagged edges. (Note, at small point sizes, the anti-aliasing can actually make some fonts less legible. Do some testing first.)
