Best Cross Platform Fonts

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 20, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
 

sans-serif, serif, monospace - these are the most generic fonts  that I am aware of that are available and look similar across all platforms.

I write online applications. I'm not a designer. So I typically haven't even bothered with setting a font-family for the site. In fact; I am beginning to question the need to do so until the new online font technologies become standard and available to everyone. It seems like a waste when you could possibly have a large demographic of end users who won't see the site the way you want them to anyway.

My questions to the community:

  • Do you set the font-family styles for your websites?
     
  • How often do you use font-family?
     
  • What are your favorite fonts that you have found work well across all platforms?

Thank you for you input.

How do I preserve __viewstate between cross domain posts or how do I get a __viewstate of a Remote S

  

Here is what I want to do:
I have a local site in which I want to display data from a remote site
Lets say: I want to display data of http://www.abc.com/Default.aspx on my localhost

Now Default.aspx requires some post-data which it sends to itself. Thus the __viewstate and __eventvalidation are posted back to it by itself. I want to directly post the data to Default.aspx from localhost without opening Default.aspx and display the Default.aspx's response on my localhost.

The WebApp on http://www.abc.com is configured for __eventvalidation i.e. I cannot post-data to it from my localhost without getting a __viewstate from it. I also have to post the current __viewstate of http://www.abc.com/Default.aspx to itself

How can I accomplish it?

One of the pain points with developing AJAX, JavaScript, JQuery, and other client-side behaviors is that JavaScript doesn't allow for cross domain request for pulling content. For example, JavaScript code on www.johnchapman.name could not pull content
