About the text preview pages.

The purpose of the text preview pages is to see if the font you are previewing is installed in the computer you are viewing it on.

If the font you are previewing is installed in your computer it will show the proper preview of that font.

If the font you are previewing is not installed in your computer it will default to Times New Roman. You can compare it with the Times New Roman check box at the top of the page. Also, on the text preview pages I put the name of the fonts on there twice. The top text label is formated to the font that is being previewed. The second name label is in Times New Roman. If both name labels look/are exactly the same, then you do not have that font installed in your system. Some fonts are very similar so you may have to look very closely.

The reason it will default to Times New Roman is because I have it set to default to Times New Roman. If Times New Roman is not installed in your computer operating system it will be substituted with whatever the default font is that your browser is set to.

The reason I chose "Times New Roman" for the default substition font is because it is the shortest font of the web safe fonts. A web safe font is considered to be safe to use in your web pages because it is considered that it is on most peoples computers. Times New Roman is installed with the computer operation system in MacOS and Windows and you can install it in most Linux versions.

I used css code in my html docs to set all of the font classes for all of the text previews. With css the person who makes a webpage can specify whatever font they want to use for whatever text they want to use it for.

The code looks very much like this;

.myclass { font-family: Arial, "Times New Roman"; }

The first font name after the css tag " font-family: " is the font that will be used for the specified text in which you classed it for. The first font in the list above is Arial. However, if that font is not installed in the viewers operating system, the browser will move on to the next font specified in the class. In the example above the next font specified is "Times New Roman". You can actually specify as many fonts as you want, however, in my opinion, specifying more than two or three fonts is pointless because you really want the font to be the first font you specify.

Commas are used to separate the font names in order. Also, if a font name has spaces inbetween it you need to put the quotation marks around it. If the font name is a single word you do not put quotation marks around it. It is important to use the proper syntax or the code might not work properly or at all. It could even cause problems in your code farther down the line.

So, all of the text previews are set to the specific font that it is suppose to be. If your computer does not have that font installed it will default to Times New Roman. If Times New Roman is not installed in your computer operating system your browser will substitute it with whatever font it is set to substitute it with.
