    Font Type Doesn't Work

    I went to vbPlaza to change the font of my user name to copperlate gothic bold and it didn't work. Is there someone who could get my points back as it cost nearly 1200. If I had to guess the reason it didn't work was because i requested a font not in the AO inventory or because the font I requested is in bold, that may have caused some trouble.

    Actually it did work, as the generated HTML code I'm seeing is setting your user name font to copperlate gothic bold... The problem is, if you don't have the True Type font 'copperlate gothic bold' installed on your system, your browser will simply substitute with the closest font that it has...

    Thanks for the help Lin and jade. I'm suprised that it didn't recognize that I have the font in Microsoft Word, it might be that I haven't registered Word yet. The link to the all the fonts is awsome jader, however being the noobcake I am I can't figure out where to save the font once I find the one I like. Thanks for your help, really appreciate it.

    Re: Font Type Doesn't Work

    Sometimes the answers are so simple... I just realized when I am changing the fount type in vbPlaza, that the font type box is cap sensitive, all this time I was typing in "copperplate gothic bold." When I followed jader's tutorial I found that I already had "Copperplate Gothic Bold True Type" along with a few hundred other fonts. On the brightside I found out a cool new font site and how to add them to my computer. Not to mention there could be other people making the same mistake as well. Thanks for all the help jader and len, I would still be lost in my computer screen right now w/o it.
