Custom Fonts

The PrimeAgile™ CMS System allows the use of custom fonts. If a standard font is being used, then the issue can be ignored. However, if it is a custom font, that isn't available in all browsers, then a custom font must be installed on the server, or the browser will replace the font with its own and the page not appear the same to all users. Installing custom fonts allows the client browsers to display the pages properly using the custom font.

If you need a custom font simply contact your representative and the font can be installed for you.

If you are unsure if you need a custom font, please review the tables below.

Standard Fonts

When you put in the font type you want when creating your website, the font-family property you should put multiple different font names that the system can 'fall' to. This will ensure that all browsers and or operating systems will be able to read the text. Each browser will go through the list and use the first compatible font.

Start with the specific font desired, and end with a generic family. This way if the specific font you want is not available, the clients local browser will then select a font from the same family.
