    Hi...I'll try to make this short...

    I'm using a pixel font from Miniml...works great in Flash, no problem...

    But I have a splash page for Plugin detection and there's going to be some text on there in the HTML...consequently, I wanted to use the same font so everything matches up...

    I'm using Dreamweaver3 for the HTML...the font works, and in Netscape 4.75 it looks identical to the Flash....but in IE5.5 and Netscape6.1 it doesn't...

    It's still sharp...but the sizing is different and it looks kind of stretched...it's bigger even at the smallest setting...

    I've got a call out to Miniml but I thought someone here might have run into this before...

    I know Miniml's fonts are designed for Flash and maybe you can't even use them in HTML...

    It's not critical...no one's going to be on this page long, but still.....

    Any thoughts??

    Thanks...

    Hi again...
    Well, I got a response from Craig Kroeger at Miniml...and I quote...

    "You need to use .gifs and place them in html frames that match the pixel dimensions exactly. It's the only way."

    So, there you have it if anyone else was wondering the same thing...

    Thanks...
