displaying different input text language on web page

P: n/a
Hi there, i hope someone can help me out here..

I have a input screen where i want the user to enter text in 2 different
languages, english and macedonian.

How is it possible to make the macedonian input boxes so when you type into
them, it is entered into macedonian font?
I dont want the users to be downloading anything also.

thanks,
Paul.

Hi, Paul

The ability to enter characters in a specific font or cultural context is
really dependent on the operating system configuration of the client
machine. You don't have control of that from IE. You might be able to
fake something up, but not with a standard input box.

Hi, Paul

The first issue you need to address to make this happen is getting a
license to distribute the font. Once you pass that hurdle, it isn't
difficult to download the file to a target computer, but the customer has
to know to put the font file in the right place. The issue of the size of
the font can be a factor if the customer has a slow connection.

Please get back to me and let me know if you need further information.

| thanks for your reply.
|
| Would you know then if it is possible to set a font for a textbox, and if
| the end-user does not have that font, it will prompt them to download and
| install it when they view that page?
|
| thanks.
