Microsoft FrontPage 2003

Default Font Options

Any text not formatted with a specified font is shown in FrontPage as a default font. This feature causes most text to be displayed in this fashion. Given this, you should choose default fonts that are easy to read so the FrontPage environment is more user-friendly.

For each language that FrontPage can display, you can specify the fonts you want to use for the default proportional font and the default fixed-width font. For definitions of these terms, refer to Terminology.

Specifying default faults in FrontPage does not affect how a page looks in a browser. A browser displays text in its own default fonts, which are independent of the FrontPage default fonts.

Proportional Font

The proportional font, used for the majority of text on a web page, adjusts the size of letters so they take only the amount of space they need.

Fixed-width Font

The fixed-width font gives each letter the same amount of space.
