fonts

P: n/a
Well by php driven site has a fantastic font that is a non-standard font.
The site looks great on localhost as the font is on my machine, but I know
that it wont display correctly on others as they may not have this font.
How do I get around this?

As far as I thought you can't. Years ago I looked for this and found
an ActiveX object that allowed you to force the install of the font
but obviously this is now frowned upon due to the fact that hardly any
browsers even allow an ActiveX script to execute.

I'm no expert on this though, I hope someone else has a better
response.

PHP has nothing to do with fonts. Try a more appropriate newsgroup such
as alt.html.
