    I have created a site using iweb. I then published to a folder. Then using fetch uploaded my site.
    On my end it looks like it should but, everyone else sees my site wit the wrong font and some button icons that I created move around. WHY???? can some help me? thanks in advance!!!!

    Also, my site is the opening page has the correct font! and so does the bio pg., but all else has been altered for some reason to be a default font.

    Fetch does not change the fonts or contents of web pages when you upload them.

    The problem appears to be that the font you used for your website - Garamond - is not a font that comes installed on all computers (in particular, it is unlikely to be found on Windows computers). If a webpage uses a font that is not available on the computer someone is reading it on, then a different font is used. Since you have Garamond installed, they look fine; but to someone who doesn't, they will see the wrong font.

    The reason the opening page show the correct font on all computers is that there the text is part of a graphic - the background with clouds. In my tests, I actually do not see the "correct" font on the bio page, either.

    The best solution is to change your website to use a more commonly available font that is similar to Garamond. One option would be Times, which is a serif font like Garamond (although perhaps not quite as nice). You could experiment with other fonts, but you'll have to re-upload the website each time to test your changes.

    I hope this helps.
