Font question

Hi there

I have a client who are using "Times New Roman" all through their CI, and therefor I need to find a similar font to use on the website that I'm creating for them. I have tried different options, but they don't look very clear. Yesterday I bought a font at www.fontsforflash.com - but the troubles is that the font is too big, and I chose it because it was the closest to Times New Roman that I could find.

Does anyone know of a font that can be used on a Flash site - with a great quality and a similar look to Times New Roman.

I have looked at www.flashkit.com - but most of the fonts I have tried from that site, doesn't get the quality I'm after.

So far I have on got super pixel fonts to look great in Flash - is that the only ones to use?

Thanks
Freja

Hi Freja,

Why don't you just use the Times New Roman font in flash?

You mentioned that one of your fonts isn't clear - are you aware of the font aliasing settings in flash and the difference made by placing text on an exact pixel position?

Hi Bob

I was aware of the exact pixel position, but never got the alising settings to work before.... but tried it again, and it seems to solve my problem.

Thanks :-)
