Here's the problem..
I'm working with a friend, he so insistant on making the fonts look
exactly 1 way, his way.
Hell, he's gone to the point on his old site and made jpegs!!! for text.
I've explained to him that thats just wasted bandwidth. I said, pick a
neat font and we can use that, so he asked if we can force that font
to be shown.
He wants an image driven page, that he's going to sell advertisments
on.. basically offering businesses page/pages to advertise their
business with images, info, etc.
I told him that these customers are going to want an information
driven site, not all pictures..
It's really starting to get on my nerves...
Can you guys give me some information to give to him to convince him.
I think that certain fonts look... comicish, childish.. these
businesses are going to want something profesional.
Please help me convince him otherwise.
