I would like the font Copperplate Gothic Bold on my entire website.Is it possible to do this adding some HTML code in addition to the Text widget? How can I do it?

( And I will prefer if I don't have to make the text into image files to do so)

try typing it in place of the current font and see what happens. If you open the current font and the name of the current font isn't there. Highlight the text, click on the "Times New Roman" font. Go into the html and change it to copperplate gothic and see if it works. Just a shot in the dark :)

if "bold" is part of the font name, type in bold as well. If bold is not part of the font name, then click the "Bold" button to make it bold. If bold is not part of the font name as Arial also has an "Arial Bold" font... do not include bold in the name is it won't register anything, almost guaranteed.

Hi-

With a specialized font like Copperplate Gothic Bold, you run the risk that if you set the code to display that font, that a user who doesn't have that font on their computer will see your site entirely differently than you have designed. In other words, only site visitors who have that font on their computer can have their browser use it to display your site in the font.

As a designer, I'd recommend sticking to a web-standard font for larger amounts of text, and then using the Copperplate Gothic Bold for headlines as graphics and added graphic elements for visual interest.

I've done something like that with this site:

Good luck!

well that's true. If you insist on using a specialized font, you can find a font package on the internet free to download and then indicate on your home page that it's best your users download this font package please click here to do so. :)
