Use Century Gothic in web page

Posted on 2011-05-10

I have read in several places that Century Gothic is a "web-safe font".

If I attempt to set that font via CSS in FF 5.6 on Mac OSX 10.6.4 I can't see it. Other than using a javascript font or CSS3, how do I simply use this font.

And what is a "web safe font", really?

    Do you have Century Gothic on your computer?  This is the reference I use for web fonts:   Note that it lists the percentage of computers that report having those fonts.

    You need to use css to specify a stack of fonts so that an alternative can be used if century gothic is not available.

    It looks like it's just my problem for not having that font installed on my system. I'll just code it in and let my client know that his viewers might be in the same boat as me.
