I haven't been able to figure these out since I was a newbie. I understand the coding (I think), but I don't know the font names besides Comic Sans. :P Any help?

Thanks!

Shawn

Different fonts are installed on different computers. So if I did Ubuntu Sans in there, it would probably work on mine and Dieki's computers, but no one else's (it would show up as the default sans). There are a few fonts that are generally on everyone's though, such as Arial and such like.

So it depends on what is on your computer, basically?

Right. Well, on the computer of whoever is reading the result of your bbcoding.

Okay. Thanks for the help! :D And for the record, I am NOT planning on using Comic Sans in my signature. =P

Speaking of fonts, how did you get that really cool font in your signature, Shawn?

Do note that Harrington isn't installed on most people's computers and so won't always work. (Your signature is in a normal font for me, for instance.)

Duly noted. :) I can't see it on some of our computers.

Thanks! I can see your font on my computer, so I might want to use it sometime. :)

So, I'm taking it that if you don't have that font on your computer you just see it as [font=such and such] as I can just see the Harringtons on Shawn's, so that must mean that font isn't on my computer, right?

I don't think so, Elanor. I might be wrong, but I think it just displays as your computer's default font....I could be wrong, though. Correct me of I'm wrong, Dieki. ;)
