I use "Comic Sans MS" font on my web page. The web page looks OK if I open it under Windows and MAC. But it does not work under Linux. How can I solve this problem? May be I can put the font on my web server? Is this font available for free? Can it slow down my page? Or may be I can replace "Comic Sans MS" by another font which is similar and is available on the 3 operation systems?
- Comic Sans is the world's most hated font (See http://bancomicsans.com/ )
- If you still want to use Comic Sans you need to install the Comic Sans font. you don't say what Linux you're running, but these instructions are reasonably universal: http://www.wikihow.com/Install-True-Type-Fonts-on-Ubuntu
- Note that this only helps you: Other Linux users may not have Comic Sans installed
Linux Font Equivalents to Popular Web Typefaces - Monday By Noon has some relevant advice, both for displaying locally (install the msttcorefonts package) and for your visitors (use some other font that looks remotely similar, such as TSCu_Comic).
If you truly hate your readers, you could also provide Comic Sans as a web font, although in some jurisdictions that might be a copyright violation.
