Hi
I,am trying to load a font file when the web page is loaded. I,am using a tool for that matter but all in vain so i thought of loading an applet through which i can access the users system to load the font into the users system ( c:/windows fonts directory )who accesses the web page .
Can it be done throught applets ?

as I known, before you visit the local file,you must be granted the according privilege first. anyway, I suggest servlet+applet maybe provide a properiate solution

You need to lad the font through the servlet then load the applet
