Default SPRY text help

i want to use spry menus on my website but want to use either a custom font or buttons. is it possible to embed a font i created from my handwriting or to use images/buttons incorporated into the menus instead of text? i'm using dreamweavr cs5 and rely primarily on design mode but can follow along with the coding a bit.

You can embed a font using @font-face (http://sixrevisions.com/css/font-face-guide/)

you need to do a bit of research on the @font-face specification. You have to upload the font files to your server and link to them in the @font-face declaration in your style sheet. Here's some more info: http://www.fontspring.com/blog/the-n...nt-face-syntax

here is an example of embeding a font which is on your own server

@font-face {
font-family: 'Swis721LtExBTLight';
url('swiss_721_light_extended_bt-webfont.ttf') format('truetype'),

}

Just wondering, do you just use the ttf format or do you provide additional formats as well?

ok so if i upload the ttf file and all the other font files i generate to my server and then link the coding to them properly it should work on other computers and other browsers? this is a font i created and isn't in anyone else's database.
