I have tried to put on a language font (hindi) but as i have the font installed and other computers may not, this will mean the text i have typed will appear as boxes or whatever, so my question is there any way of typing in gujarati and will work on any web browsers and computer?

i am using Dreamweaver CS3 to create the webpages aswell.

:grin: thank you

Are you using UTF-8 for you character encoding? You should then be able to add Hindi text without relying on a specific font so others can see the text correctly.

You can set this by going to the menu, "Modify" > "Page Properties..." and then selecting the "Title/Encoding" category. You can then change the encoding to "Unicode (UTF-8 )" if it isn't already.

This Firefox download page (http://en-us.www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all.html) uses UTF-8 so many languages, including Hindi, can be displayed without specifying the fonts.
