Website not using correct font.

Hi,

I'm developing an intranet site for my colleagues which has been created using ASP .NET/VIsual Studio.

I am using the XtraReports/XtraPrinting components from DevExpress on my pages. My problem is that the font I've selected for my report (Arial Narrow) only gets displayed when I'm previewing the site using "Local Host" within Visual Studio. When I publish the site to our web server and then open it, the font is always replaced with  Microsoft Sans Serif.

I think this is some sort of security/permission issue but am not sure where to look to fix it. I've got a little lost in the world of ASP Permissions.

Thank you in advance for any help.

Add the font to your css:

@font-face {  
  font-family: yourFontName ;  
  src: url( /location/of/font/FontFileName.ttf ) format("truetype");  
}
