Font Difference

See attached. I am using a font called "Memphis" on a trail basis from MyFonts.

You can review the result at http://rkassoc.org/Davis/menu/menu_testb.htm.

Looks good in FireFox & Chrome; does not work on an Ipad (Safari, IOS).

Why?

You can't expect the IPAD to support any font out there.
Here's a list and even this might be outdated

Take a look at the app mentioned in the article.

By "not work" I mean it shows as Times - New Roman.

No browser/device combination supports every possible font, and they do not necessarily render them the same.  I generally prefer not to use externally sourced fonts, and I almost never actually specify the font because I prefer to respect the user's defaults knowing that they are comfortable with the fonts they select, but might not like my choices.

I talked to the Font vendor; they indicated the font will work with the later versions of IOS / Safari; my versions are old.
