Why are you even using Linux??

linux is not windows, and Lindows is not linux.
linux is linux, use mozilla or netscape instead..........

I'm using Fedora Core 1. That is linux.
I'm using Mozilla. (I might switch to firefox)
Even after I installed my fonts the browser still uses the ones that have been set in the properites, not the ones that have been set on the page.
Oh please help!!!

have you tried the codification changing it to western windows or something, I dont know if thats your problem or that you dont have the right display, maybe because the fonts you will see are the ones that the page has , and not the ones you have installed,
