Hello everyone,

I am designing my own website and I have just started learning the basics of Dreamweaver.

My front page has text in the "Helvetica Neue Bold condensed" font.

It looks good on my design page but when i preview the page in my browser (firefox) the font changes completely!?.

How can I get my text to look the same in my browser?..:confused:

Thankyou!.

Hi L and welcome to the forums.

If you don't have the font on your computer, it's not going to work.

Thanks Domedia, Ill have a look at my css and the position atributes.

Here is a graphical example of what I mean:

As you can see the Image with the mountain is slightly ontop of the righthands side column.....How did they achieve this? through css or just cutting up the images in a certain way in Photoshop?

How can you achieve this type of overlap?

SORRY WRONG THREAD!! MISTAKE!
