Hi there

we want to use the standard Microsoft Gabriola font.
I wonder if there are still computers, laptops, tablets or smartphones that don't have this default font.

In this case, should I create a CSS link to load this font?
How can I do this please?

I don't want an alternative like font-family: 'Gabriola', Arial;

We only want to show Gabriola, on ALL devices all over the world.

Impossible

You can import a font, and Google is your friend toward learning how. But, not all browsers will support that feature. That is just a fact of life. Tell your design dweeb to specify alternative fonts right down to the generic serif or non-serif, etc. fonts. To not do so is poor practice.

cheers,

If your web page is as clever as you can make it, it's probably too clever for you to debug or maintain.
