Hello all,
Does someone know where can I find some Dynamic Fonts, which support ISO-8852-2 or win1250 codepages? I need them to make our characters visible. For instance, Bitstream fonts don't work!

Regards
Janko

Go to http://www.microsoft.com/truetype/content.htm

Here you'll find three nice sans serif fonts that are distributed with IE4 and Win98: Tahoma, Trebuchet, and Verdana. All three support Win1250 codepages. All allow installable embedding. All are available to anyone who wants to download them FREE of CHARGE. (This means that anyone who uses the NS browser can get the fonts and see your page as you intended).

While you're at the site, look at the paragraph in the upper right corner, TrueType fonts and utilities. Download the Font Properties Extension (approx 350k). Rather than just getting the ordinary file properties dialog box when you right click on a font and select properties, this gives you ten tabs worth of information including a list of supported codepages for any true type font.

Keep in mind that whatever font you use, if your site user doesn't have the font installed on their system, they won't see the page as you had intended. The default font for their browser will be used instead.

I didn't meant usual TrueType but Dynamic Fonts (look at http://www.truedoc.com/webpages/intro/) which are platform independent and currently work native only in Netscape 4.x.  Bitstream has some of those fonts for free, but no-one support our codepage well.
