Can yoi install a "Sarcasm" font?

Unread postby Clayton » Thu Apr 18, 2013 5:57 pm

I suggest something like italics, only pointing the other way and maybe bold.

Animation is a lot like sex. Done right it's a beautiiful act of creation that brings a little more light into the world. If it's sick and wrong... it's even better.

Because of the way things work there's no easy way to put a font to a forum. When you see custom fonts on web pages they are part of images. Everything else has to be in one of the generically defined web compatible fonts.

since different fonts comes installed on different systems and with different programs, there's actually very few fonts that are truly web safe. Best one can hope for really is commonly installed fonts and then suggest reasonable fallbacks. this work for fonts like Verdana and Arial where the fall back fonts and eventually the default system font for the browser really doesn't change the look of the page drastically. but for special case fonts like a specific "sarcasm font" the change of a good fallback on any given system is not very good.

w3 schools has a list of commonly used fonts with fallbacks and families here http://www.w3schools.com/cssref/css_websafe_fonts.asp you'll find most pages uses one of these.

Actually the sample you provided in your post is a good example. As seen below, first picture from my desktop and the second is from my tablet.
