Thanks alot for your help. If you have any fonts on your computer that look like the ones in the picture (especially the stencil font) that have different names than the ones above, please reply with the name of that font.

I'm using cascadeing style sheets on my site and I'm trying to get some common fonts on people's computers that match the graphics on the rest of the site. The page you have visited causes your browser to look on your system for any font that matches one of the fonts on a given list. I'm trying to expand this list by adding similar fonts. Ideally, everyone would see the text in the box as something similar to the Steamer/Stencil font.
Thanks again.

The text in the box matches the "Stencil" font on my computer which is a near (but not quite) match for the 'Stencil' sample you have on the page.

In terms of stencil-like fonts...I've got one called "ELLIS" and also "STENCIL".

Actually I found an exact match, I have Office 2000 and in word the font is called Courier heres a picture: I copied your address into word and it matched Courier,so i typed some things to prove it, then I copied it into paint so i could put it on image shack and here it is.

Posted Image

hope this helped

edit: I know that it looks a little different but that's because I had to make it into a jpeg.

the only really good way to do fonts in HTML pages is to use images for stuff that HAS to be a certain font, and define families for the body text (serif, sans, fantasy, monospace etc). trust me, i fought this for a LONG time, played with microsoft WEFT (web embedded font tool) which lets you source the font data into a data file on your sever, its ugly and complex and makes you want to cut your fingers off. dont worry about that one.

the best idea, within the images restriction, is to use SVG. you'll need illustrator (freehand might export SVG, i dont know). but you'll get images that can be scaled, resized, filtered and otherwise manipulated at render time that take up minimal space.
