CSS font scale

  • # August 28, 2008 at 4:16 am

    I am making a Website for my friend and i got a problem with font.. Photoshop Layout Menu has font ‘Times New Roman’ with size 18,67pt..

    The problem is that it also has scaling in photoshop character editor, vertical – 97% horizontal – 126%. Is there any way to make this font using CSS??

    There is a css property called "font-stretch", which condenses or expandes the text horizontally only. However, it doesnt seem to be supported by any of the main browsers as of yet. You can read more about it here:

    If you want the text to look exactly as it does in photoshop then you will have to use it as an image.
