Fonts on my webpage display as they should in Opera, Netscape, Firefox, and IE, but not is Safari. Does anyone know how I may fix this? I'm using the papyrus font, but the font looks like verdana. Thanks

But not is Safari.

Is the font your using available on the Mac? If not, it is going to default to a generic font family. For example, if you used Arial as your specified font for your website and you don't have Arial installed on your Mac, then Helvetica is the mostly likely next candidate in line to display.

I'm using the papyrus font.

I don't believe that font is a default font on the Mac.

not only that, papyrus isn't default on any operating system I know, so the number of people seeing what you are seeing is probably negligible. I have lots of windows fonts, don't have that one. No other os I know of has it either unless someone actually installed it.

I've had MACs from Classic to OS 10.4 and I've never seen that font on any application.

You could set up the font family and start it with Papyrus for your own pleasure then list verdana, etc.

<font family="papyrus, verdana, arial, sans-serif">

Or for CSS use:

font-family: papyrus, verdana, arial, sans-serif;

Fwiw I've just checked and Papyrus is on my mac (10.4.5). It also looks like it's the default 'fantasy' font on my Safari. What does your code look like? Maybe it should be something like:

body { font-family: Papyrus, fantasy; }

?

I've made the "papyrus titles" into images instead. Thanks for your suggestions. I've filed them for the next time the issue comes up.
