Are you willing to finance my acquisition of a new car? If you are willing, here is a sample

http://abfonts.freehostia.com/k22-aking-didot.htm

If you need more samples, see here http://www.dafont.com/toto.d3205?fpp=50

or go to http://abfonts.freehostia.com click on the "Extra" tab, click on "Fonts List" link, click on the "Author" tab and scroll down the list till you find "Toto". There are fonts there that are not found here at Dafont

or you might want to have a look at http://typedrawers.com If you are going to sign up there, the board requires that you use your real name. If you are intereseted to get the services of someone from that board, that person will likely not come cheap.

Dec 04, 2014 at 04:31  [reply]  disney used my font

I doubt if those are Disney products. Someone might have just gotten a right to use Frozen from Disney.

As for your font, how sure are you that the manufacturer of the shirt has not made a donation? I downloaded your font just now and did not see anything there aside from the font. They might have sent you a $1 dollar or a $1,000 donation, and that clears them of any liability. Target did not disclose the manufacturer so you do not have an idea who to look for among those who made a donation to you. If you think you were aggrieved by this and you are thinking of taking legal action, sue Target. On my part, I always ask who the end user is since it is most often that the agency is the one who contacts you and makes the donation on behalf of the end user.

If your intent is to make extra cash, I suggest you change Donationware to Free for personal use. To give you an idea of how much to ask, look at the end of this blog post

Although you can't ask as much as that for your fonts, you will have a very good idea on how much to ask for the commercial use of your fonts.


Nov 26, 2014 at 11:42  [reply]  fonts into windows live mail

Windows Live Mail is the Outlook Express of Windows 7 (probably Vista also), and you can use EOT in Outlook Express. See this for more info http://forum.fontlab.com/index.php?topic=4712.0 That info is also applicable to Windows Live Mail

Search for other references on the subject on the net. On how to create the EOT font, that page mentions WEFT which is a free download from Microsoft https://www.microsoft.com/typography/WEFT.mspx You can also use the free web font conversion services on the internet to create EOTs of your fonts.


Nov 08, 2014 at 03:44  [reply]  Candlescript "error found" message

I think that is more of a Fontlab bug. I see that very often and I just ignore it. The font works fine in Win XP and Win7.

The French version says font em-square while the English version says bbox size


Oct 31, 2014 at 04:44  [reply]  Futura with looser kerning for web?

For no modification of the font, try this

<style type="text/css">
.futura {font-family:Futura;letter-spacing:50px}
</style>

use the class on whatever you wanted in Futura with a wider letter spacing, like this

<span class="futura">FUTURA</span>

Change the value of letter spacing to what your prefer.

Your problem might have been caused by the settings used when you converted the desktop font to a webfont. Convert the font again and tell the site to retain the font's kerning, and see how it goes. You would not likely encounter that if you have a legal copy of the Futura webfont.

FontForge saves a backup of the backup? Lucky you, Claude.

That disappearing glyphs need to be taken cared of by the people who are developing the program. Has this been brought to their attention or discussed in a FontForge forum?


Oct 16, 2014 at 16:56  [reply]  FontForge 14 oct 2014

I hope it is not beyond recovery. The disappearing glyphs are probably still there and were moved to other glyph positions. I hope you find the missing glyphs and find a fix to that because I like the swishy font that you are doing. Looking forward to the day it is released.

I suggest you ditch that "Welcome to my site!" It makes the site look cheap.


Oct 16, 2014 at 06:16  [reply]  FontForge 14 oct 2014

Can I see a sample, Claude?


Oct 16, 2014 at 06:10  [reply]  CSS script for fonts

Then what seems to be the problem? You seem to be complaining about the non-rendering of the font. I see the same thing as daaams and koeiekat saw. I do not have the font installed. I do not install fonts other those that were bundled with Windows and programs installed in my PC.



I suggest you enclose in quotes Jenna Sue in "@font-face { font-family: Jenna Sue; ...." and include the woff version of the webfont.

I suggest that you go to the Jenna Sue font page and click on the "Donate" button on that page, especially if you are doing the webpage for a fee. It is a way of thanking her for digitizing the font.


Oct 15, 2014 at 17:31  [reply]  CSS script for fonts

Send me your real CSS to to22to at gmail dot com or better the URL of the page where the font is used.


Oct 15, 2014 at 16:06  [reply]  CSS script for fonts

If your @font-face declarations in your real CSS appear exactly like the ones you posted, I am not surprised why the font does not show. You enclosed your @font-face in /* and */. That is the cause of all your problem because that tells the browser to ignore everything between /* and */. That means you do not have a declared @font-face and will rely on the visitor having the font installed, which will likely not be the case. The only working CSS declaration there is the first h1.title

Suggestions: Use a full path, like your http://www.mysite.com/New1/fonts/jennasue.woff to be avoid complications. Also use all lowercase folder and file names to avoid problems in case your webserver is case sensitive. I strongly suggest that you look for a CSS validator and check your CSS for errors there.

If you unpacked the ZIP you downloaded to somewhere in your hard disk, double click on jennasue-demo.html and you would see something like this




Run the demo from your hard disk and see if it works.

If you are willing to show your CSS, I'd like to have a look. The problem might be somewhere there.


Oct 11, 2014 at 05:38  [reply]  Contest / Concurso "laFont"...

I think it is called marketing. IMO it is using the name contest to build awareness to the font. If and when it is time to release the font at MyFonts, people already know about it and might decide to buy. This also helps to introduce people to the foundry and to its fonts currently in the market. There are just too many foundries and too many fonts at MyFonts that you need to be creative to get noticed.

If I participate and win the naming contest, do I get royalty for naming the font?


Oct 11, 2014 at 05:22  [reply]  CSS script for fonts

@SteveHi Are you referring to this font http://www.dafont.com/jenna-sue.font ? If that's the font, download this http://cjoint.com/14oc/DJlfgwacN55.htm Cut and paste the CSS code into your CSS file or HTML. Place the fonts in the folder where you want them to be. Set the correct path to the font in your @font-face declarations. Do not change anything else in the CSS that came with the web font. Make sure that references to that font in your other CSS declarations is the same as that in the font-family declared in the CSS code that you cut and pasted.

If this doesn't work, there must be something that you are doing wrong To check unpack the ZIP, do not touch anything and open jennasue-demo.html. If the demo does not work, there is something else that is causing your problem.

If you've just read the specs on that link...


Oct 10, 2014 at 21:16  [reply]  CSS script for fonts

@SteveHi before you do that, I suggest you contact the author/designer of the font and get his/her thoughts regarding your use of the font as a web font. Using the font that way might be interpreted as no longer personal by that particular author/designer.

Second, what you described is not embedding. Also, the font can be located anywhere in the server as long as your @font-face declarations use the correct path to the font. There is a way to embed a font but that is beyond the point.

As for your question on font names, I suggest you read this specs as the issues you raised are answered there http://www.w3.org/TR/2002/WD-css3-webfonts-20020802/ Use your browsers Find function to jump to the @font-face section. Be reminded that this document is a technical specification but I am sure you would not find it hard to understand what is in there.

BTW have you tested the various possibilities that you showed? Which one works? Or all 3 works?

The font name referred in "font-family: myFirstFont;" is the internal name of the font. The font name in "src: url(sansation_light.woff);" is the file name of the font. You can change this to anything you want like a.woff. As for other things, see the specs.


Oct 04, 2014 at 04:04  [reply]  Does a logo count as commercial use ?

@koeiekat I keep away from the word "free" because it is taken nowadays as public domain. You can say that it is the synonym of public domain when speaking of fonts.

I am not aware of the transaction that came with the use of this 100% Free font here at Dafont. I came to know about this from the website of someone who used to hang around ABF. I wonder if this organization asked permission to use and modify this font. The font was posted here in 2012 and the modified font was used by the organization this year. I hope that organization, at least, gave the designer/author the courtesy of asking permission to use and modify the font but that "100% Free" tag can be misconstrued as public domain - use the font as you please.

You can say that it is free but I would rather not.
