I've searched help and cannot seem to find how to insert Wingdings using
NoteTab Pro. If I use Open Office and use insert symbol then NoteTab
seems to see it OK. But how do I use NTP directly?
- Hi PG:
You've opened up a nightmare for mature publishers. I call them
"mature" because they've gone beyond the defaults of all browsers and are
starting to demand things that browser vendors are reluctant to address,
"site based look and feel rather than the browser's look and feel." This is
an issue that I've been fighting now for several years.
To implement your wingdings, you're going to have to resort to
Bitstream's downloadable fonts. This currently only works on MSIE 5+ (maybe
4 - I can't remember now.) Go to the Compendium and at the first page,
select "view the site with downloadable fonts." You will be asked to
install the font reader as an active-X control. Let it install. Removal
instructions are included in the link to first time users on the first
Go to the section on Notes --> Coding Notes --> Fonts. Read the
entire five pages in this section. This will give you and idea on how to
include them. The alternative to wingdings is to create a graphic but this
is font size specific and you'll have to carefully adjust their size to
ensure that the lines don't get pushed out of their proper leading (line
If any part of this is not clear, let me know and I'll try again
in a different direction.
I hope this helps.

If this was posted to the basic list I'd say:
NoteTab Pro will only display fixed pitch fonts, so you won't be able to
insert any character from the Wingdings font into NoteTab.
However, this is the HTML list, and for that I say you insert it in the same
way as any other font, through the <font face="wingdings"></font> tag or the
similar CSS declaration.

And bear in mind that any font is only viewable on the recipients machine if
they have it installed. unless.....
and that's where we get into the complicated business of embedding fonts
into the pages, which I'll leave for Ron to go into, cos, when most people
do this they resort to turning the fonts into graphics and placing them on
the page instead.
