Check out

www.headstudios.com.au

See the big white text on the left? What I want to do is make that into CSS, so it looks exactly the same and when the mouse goes over it I want it to glow, maybe a lighter color (in this case let's use gray as the standard color and white as the rollover (or hover) color.

Any ideas for good text to use that everybody has?

Also probably put it in a div on the left.

I know this is basic, that's why I placed it on the basic CSS Questions page.

Regards

So just to confirm I can't attach files?

Basically I think I can work this out, I will just look at the Photoshop source file, find out what the font is and then replicate that on a new CSS Wonder page that shuns the scary cut up Photoshop designs.

So is there like Web Safe fonts or something like that? Who decides that if I may ask?

there is such a thing as

there is such a thing as web-safe fonts. In a nutshell, if the user doesnt have the font being called by your website installed on his(or her) computer, it will default to Arial. So keep to basic fonts that come with windows.

or...

you can research the new type technologies that offer other methods of getting uncommon fonts to appear on the screen. Personally, ive been working with @font-face, for now anyways.

Windows Fonts

Where do I find a list of the basic fonts that come with Windows?

Also can't the user just download the fonts automatically? Like an image? Why is that so hard to do?

Cheers

too much work and hoops to jump through for a user to DL stuff to get your page to render correctly. Your page should just work, without having crap to DL. Also, why would anybody DL anything from an untrusted source?

In regards to my other question...

Yes makes sense, I thought Windows would just download the fonts automatically but I know some hacker will eventually find some way to take advantage of it. I love hackers.

So where do I find what fonts I can and can't use? Like how do I know?
