Hi Experts,

I need your help. I know that I can specify the page default character set using the following HTLM phrase:

<BASEFONT face="CharSetName">

I wrote this phrase in HTML-view manually for each page because I didn't find this option nowhere. Could somebody suggest the way how to make it by one instruction for the whole site?

kind regards

Janos

You would need to use CSS.
Something like:

body,p,td
{
font-family: courier, serif, "lucida console",
}

You can save this as something like style.css & then insert it into every page (HEAD):
<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/style.css" type="text/css">

This will help you in the futre because if you decide to change the font, you change one page (style.css) :  http://www.w3schools.com/css/css_font.asp

Hi Corey,

thanks for your comment. Unfortunately this is the same case as above: I have to write on every page something what I'd like to eliminate. The only advantage of your recommendation is the simple possibility to change the parameters.

I'm looking for a parameter setting possibility somewhere in the Options/Web settings/Page options... section

Well personally I have never used <BASEFONT face="CharSetName"> - but if it is placed in the <HEAD>, you can doa find & replace:
Find:
</head>
replace with
<BASEFONT face="CharSetName">
</head>

That might be one way to do it in the future.

You know 3-4 years ago I made a web site project having ~300 HTML pages, ~6000 inner and ~500 outer links, 1000 pictures etc. There I could use this function to replace on 100-120 pages :-))

It would have helped :)  that's for sure.  If you get the chance, I would highly suggest to updgrade to FP 2003.  It offers so much more & very easy to work with.
