OK, ive started to design the photo album for my site, and I'm not sure which font I should use, so I took a snapshot of it.
Also does anyione know how to get a web page to download and install a font? Since no one visiting is gonna have the font I want to use.
So what font do you like best?

Just to clarify, since two of em dont look ledgible... "My friend Leslie modeling some sexy underwear" its on her head
"jillian getting nasty with a bottle of corona"

Either the bottom left or bottom right one.
Man, I must be bored if I'm responding to this thread.

Thanks Ice 9, sofar there have been 25 views, but no responses. Most of my frineds picked the same one as you. SO Im gonna go with the bottom left.
Now, The important question...
DOES ANYONE KNOW HOW TO DO EMBEDDED FONTS????
Any one of the ones on the left page. But I wouldn't try to make the browser download a font. It's just asking for a bunch more work. (Unless all your friends run the same version browser.)

the thing is, it wouldnt look right unless i have a nice font to go wiht it. So even though it'd be a pain, I'd liek to have an embedded font.

Yes, what about him????

instead of forcing them to download a font, use 2-color gif's for the picture texts, it's not like youll be changing the descriptions
You've never heard of the troll known as Nick Caputo? This is original troll who defined the word troll! http://www.geocities.com/sbp7777/trollgif.x
This known liar has ripped off people, caused numerous flame wars and was intent on causing as much trouble as possible at forums like anandtech, agn3d and many others. He tries to beguile naive people on the net into trading with him. (http://www.pcabusers.net/forums/showthread.php?threadid=5254)
Ever wonder why Anandtech doesn't allow pictures to be posted? The first reason is because of bandwidth reasons. But there's also another reason. Way back when Puto Stank kept posting nasty porn pictures.
This thread lets you know everything about Puto Stank (http://www.pcabusers.net/forums/showthread.php?threadid=1742)
The pos is obsessed with the pca community and has a screw loose. The sob keeps popping up under different names and lurks at that forum. In fact a few days ago pca admin dealt firmly and swiftly with the troll when he popped up yet again. :eek:
So while this isn't your friend, the name Nick Caputo has bad connotations to those of us who know about him and seen his exploits.
The admins of this forum are aware of Nick Caputo and other trolls. We will deal with any that come here! Thank you for your concern =)

The bottom left is by far the greatest ever created by man! (with help by some chicks too...I mean women! I ment women! Crap! My e-mail is going to fill up again.)

Oh yea getting back to the topic.. I think "or this one? I kinda like it"... Looks cool

UPDATE ON NICK CAPUTO
After readign the thread and thinking about the name, something just didnt sound right. Then I realized his last name isn't caputo, its KAMUDA.
2 color GIF idea
As for this idea,it wouldnt be easily implemented. If you look closely at the page, you can see it is not 1 color, and I do not want it to be one color(it wouldnt look like an old book if it was).
any other easier suggestions?

Actually, the gif idea could still work - just make the backgrounds transparent. I'm using gifs for the text on my site, so if you're concerned about load time, check out my page at http://go.to/B-Works and see how long it takes. Embedding fonts is a ROYAL pain because half the people don't bother to download them, but if you're dead set on it, I'll write you up some instructions.

The laod time was quick, but...making the gifs would be a pain. If I want to edit the text, Im gonna have to make anothe rgif. So I think Im dead set on using an embedded font.
As for people not downloading the font, thats thier choice.
