Uh oh... I don't think your insert worked [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm VERY anxious to see how it looks. Believe it or not, I've also bought one of his fonts, but just haven't gotten around to getting it installed yet. He's such a generous soul to walk you through the installations :D

WHEN I finally install mine, don't be surprised to find gramma on your virtual doorstep for guidance ;)

Congratulations!!!

the sad thing about the web and fonts [In reply to] Can't Post

is that they only work if the person viewing them has the font on their machine Unimpressed If gramma doesn't have it installed on her machine, she's seeing whatever her browser has substituted for it

If you want to show off your shiny new font, then do a small pic with just text for your footer using it. Then everyone can enjoy it!

Yes, that's the best way [In reply to] Can't Post

When I've posted words in Tengwar or Angerthas, I've first created a jpeg with the text in it, then uploaded that and linked to it.

That way it can be inserted into the post text.

I do like that font. Perhaps you should consider adding your jpeg to your footer.

Aragorn threw back his cloak. The elven-sheath glittered as he grasped it, and the bright blade of Andúril shone like a sudden flame as he swept it out. 'Elendil!' he cried. 'I am Aragorn son of Arathorn, and am called Elessar, the Elfstone, Dúnadan, the heir of Isildur Elendil's son of Gondor. Here is the Sword that was Broken and is forged again! Will you aid me or thwart me? Choose swiftly!' TTT, Book III, Chapter 2
And Éomer answered: 'Since the day when you rose before me out of the green grass of the downs I have loved you, and that love shall not fail.' RotK, Book VI, Chapter 5

I found some nice fonts a while back, and they weren't too tricky to install.

Here: http://www.geocities.com/...lley/1557/fonts1.htm

Hope the link works for you.

And there's some here: [In reply to] Can't Post

at DaFonts
If you aren't familiar with this site, it has a nice feature.

In the top left, find the field that says, "Custom preview" and "Type your text here". Then type the/a word you're hoping to write in that font, like your name. Then hit enter. Most of the fonts will provide a preview of how that word will look in that font. This saves you loading a font only to find out you don't like it's capitol S or something. And, if a particular character - like an apostrophe - is important, using preview will let you know if that font has an apostrophe.

Some fonts look better in all lower case (Aniron is a good example) and some in all upper case... so typing variations of your name is sometimes a good idea... depending on how long it is.
Magpie magpie MAGPIE

and uh... a warning I guess. I'd noticed that they'd added flashing ads the last time I visited. They annoyed me but I didn't stay long and I didn't pay much attention to them. Now that I look, they're a bit adultish. Nothing totally X rated but not for children w/o adult supervision. Not all of them are... but that one was. And I don't see a 'contact us' link for me to scold them about this.

Congratulations on getting the font! How cool that you can write anything in it now -- makes me want to buy it too!
