The sharp fonts you find in Photoshop, we need to create that on a website through CSS. Making the font look smooth

Smooth fonts aren't considered 'sharp' because they are actually blurred or 'antialiased'. The fonts you see in Photoshop are not available in most web browsers unless they are installed in the operating system. So this limits what is available in the browser. You can only specify four possible fonts with css out of a safe seven or so and, even then, only one or two will work.

The only other way to include Photoshop fonts is to display them on the web as an image but this is not always a practical idea because images can take a long time to download compared to text.

The other way is (Flash Text). With it, u can use any TrueType font u have installed on ur computer. And BTW, the flash file is usually smaller than the same text rendered as an image.

I am trying to use nice fonts for my nav menu. I downloaded and installed a very nice font. I opened photoshop and made nice labels with text to use for the images for the nav menu. I use dreamweaver and put the images in and they look great. But when I try to test the page, everything looks bigger in the browser, and the fonts are now blurry and hard to read and look awful. I've tried different things but same problem. How can I make nice...

I saw a few posts on this newsgroup about it but nothing to help me resolve this problem: We designed a window in .NET on a platform using small fonts (120 ppp). But this window will run on servers configured with large fonts. For a reason I cant explain, not only the font changes when settings the window on large font but all the widgets seem to be resized. This is kind of problematic because I have to redraw (resize) all the widgets...

Hi all Have a customer that wants a specific font included in her web page design; Comic Sans MS. This is one of the MS core fonts. The problem I have is that some of the *nix browsers do NOT include these fonts by default. http://www.diamondvet.com/test renders those fonts correctly using an XP box. After I installed those fonts on my machine, firefox and mozilla both rendered them correctly. So here is the question:

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
