Font issue (W2K vs XP)
I have WS 4.0 installed on my home system (W2K-Pro) and have been using the red "unsafe" fonts (Cezanne in particular) with no problems. I recently went on a trip and installed 4.0 on my laptop (XP system)to work on the site. I only have one red font to pick from (as opposed to the many on my home system). It also appears my Cezanne fonts have been converted to Times New Roman on my laptop. Any ideas? I have re-loaded with no luck.
Font Question
This may sound like a dumb question, but if one uses unsafe fonts and then turn them into graphics, will the search engines still be able to read the copy? If not then I assume you have to use safe fonts only to write copy containing your keywords.
