Nope, the embedded fonts are the things which make the text work, nothing to do with the pictures themselves I'm afraid..

If someone writes a web page in standard HTML for instance and uses a font like, say, President font - while it might look okay being viewed on any PC which has that font actually on its hard drive, the chances of anyone using Linux or possibly a MAC seeing the same font when they view the web site is remote indeed.

But by embedding fonts in a flash banner, even if the person viewing the site does not have that font on his/her computer, they will still see the font as it is meant to be seen.

It's all smoke and mirrors and why people should avoid using MS Comic to write web sites (sorry, that's just my soapbox getting in the way ;) ).

Keep at them though, I'm sure they'll answer you soon.

hi mike,yes i was thinking of your superbasic template too,good deal and seems like i can change quite a few things,am i able to swap the flash image for my own pictures too or just the ones on the list,the reason i wanted the other one is because it also includes the tz menu,but yours is cheap enough so i can buy the floating menu plugin also and it will still be only $50 also can i switch the menu to the left
