Shank is correct, styles sheet is the way to go for setting font
sizes. If you want the viewer to be able to enlarge or reduce
the size it's recommended that you use percentages or smallest
to largest, if however you want it to be set at one propitional size
for layout purposes I recommend using pixel (px) sizes.
Shanl's also correct that they won't see Tacoma if they don't have
Tacoma, exspecially across platforms. You should always provide
standard alternatives such as:
Verdana (win) = Geneva (mac)
Arial = Helvetica
Times New Roman = Times
There are now fonts supplied with browser installs and other apps
that are generally shared (but not always) on both platforms:
Georgia, Arial, Verdana, Times New Roman ... so alwasy try to
include alternative for other platform. Name the Win font you
want first, then your lesser choices.
As in: font-family: Verdana,Geneva,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif
If you really want to deliver Tacoma to a wider group you should look
into dynamic font generation. These fonts are rasterized, placed on
your server and linked into your style sheet and/or html document.
Get info at:
You are allowed to actually link to the fonts (pfr's) supplied on the
true doc site, but this can be slow and kinda hinkie.
You might want to look up dynamic or web fonts at on the browser
Hope this helps,
