The first two "Liananna" are supposed to be in
Code: Select all
<FONT FACE="Lovecraft's Diary">Liananna</FONT>
, but it's not showing up.

It actually shows in Commodo IceDragon but not in Seamonkey.

So...

What is going on here with it?!

EDIT: I'm using Windows XP Pro SP3 and Seamonkey 2.46.

Hope someone can help me out here.

I couldn't get it to display another font but I did notice you have a mismatch of <font> and </font> tags. There is one </font> at the very bottom without a matching opening tag.

You have a font-face tag in your master.css -- I'm not sure how or which one will override the others.

Edit: If I change the font-face in the master.css it will change the entire page so there is likely some override that is not happening within your page. I just don't know what that is.

I got rid of the /font at the bottom and changed the master.css. But it still won't show the font I want for Liananna's name. It shows on other browser's but not on Seamonkey.:(

Firefox has a problem with the apostrophe in the font name.
Firefox and Chromium seem to work with the apostrophe escaped this way:
Code: Select all
<font face="Lovecraft\'s Diary">Liananna</font>

Of course the font has to be installed in the OS. Maybe an image would work better in this case.
