    fonts

    i made a page with a particular pixel font that i downloaded off the internet. when i open the website on mine the pixel font appears but on my friends computer, her's displays a different font not the pixel font.

    im thinking it wont appear on her computer because she doesn't have that particular font. but i like this font. how can i make this font be viewed by all viewers of my website? is there a way, thanks.

    You have to embed the font if you use dynamic texfields. Select the textfield. Click the CHARACTER button in the property panel and choose what parts of the font to include in the swf file.

    For static textfields the fonts are automatically embedded.

    static

    When i choose the static fonts, the fonts come out a little blurry. How can I correct this.

    That's the antialiased look that you'll get with static textfields or with dynamic textfiels if you embed the font. To minimize the blur, make sure the textfield's coordinates is on exact value pixels, i.e. x=135.0 & y=150.0 (for example), rather than x=135.2 & y=150.7.
    If the textfield in nested in a movie clip, make sure the mc's coordinates are also on exact pixels values. Textfields and clips must not have been scale either and should be 100% across.

    You can try to use a pixel font, which remains sharper even if it's embedded, contrary to normal standard fonts.

    still

    its still blurry... i adjusted the coordinates to full perfect numbers. and still it is blurry. and when i use a static text of a special font it wont show up on my friend's computer, it will come up as a default font.

    thanks,

    Attach your .fla, zipped up and in MX only format. Also provide that font file if it's a non-standard font.

    This is not a pixel font, it's a graphic. What pixel font did you download?

    company and jobs are static.
    the other two are embedded, and they are blurry than the original.

    So you're saying Company and jobs are ok, but not the other 2?

    But as I said, the other 2 are not textfields but graphics?

    when i type with the original pixel font it is crystal clear. then when u embed the image it becomes blurry, is there a way u can make it crystal clear like the original when i type it on the scene.
