Dear All,
I have a client that wants to use images to make the text look good on a Web page (because it is anti-aliased and that makes the text clearer) but this causes enormous problems that I don't need to mention here.

A workaround for this would be the use of font streaming to control the look of the text. However, although I cannot see that this would pose any accessibility problems per se, does anyone have any previous experience of font streaming and accessibility?

In particular, does anyone at the W3C have any further information on this subject? If not, I am going to trial the idea and see what happens and would be happy to share my findings with everyone as long as I am not duplicating previous postings or ideas.

I shall leave this in everyone's capable hands and look forward to hearing what people have to say about it.

Kind regards

Simon White
