I am currently trying to convert two TTF fonts to OTF, so that I can have them on my website.  My question is this.  Is there any way of testing it (without removing the font from my PC), on my PC (I don't have a spare one avaialble where I am).

I can upload the test website to a test area, but not sure what to do next.

    Why don't you name the new font with another name while you are testing and change the fontname locally in the html pages for the tests?

    It's the simple (amazingly obvious) suggestions I love.

    Thank you.
