The different computers should use the different font families.

A new blockquote could be created for the bird and weird dream.

Not everyone has these fonts, though. --DorianGray 21:50, 1 March 2007 (UTC)

Is there any way to make Courier New like a secondary font in case the computer does not have the font installed? --AOL 22:14, 1 March 2007 (UTC) — (Talk | contribs) 22:14, 1 March 2007 (UTC) (left unsigned)

I'm 99% sure yes. Bluebry 22:36, 1 March 2007 (UTC)
Yes, but there's no need to do this. If you enjoy seeing authentic fonts in your sbemail blockquotes, style it in your Monobook.css. Other than that, not too many people have those fonts or are even able to, and the curent font system is working just fine. — Lapper (talk) 22:38, 1 March 2007 (UTC)
How would that be done?-- 00:41, 3 March 2007 (UTC)
Also, I use AOL and my IP address changes sometimes, should that matter? (I'm the same person as the last note my IP address changed, that's why I signed with AOL instead of an IP address.)-- 01:44, 3 March 2007 (UTC)
I have an account now, so I suppose it shouldn't.--Another Freakin' Guy Named Daniel 01:54, 3 March 2007 (UTC)
Sweet! I was just about to tell you that you need an account to create your monobook.css page. Welcome to the wiki :-) Loafing 01:56, 3 March 2007 (UTC)
I think I've got it figured out.--Another Freakin' Guy Named Daniel 03:42, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

Here's the code, in case anybody else wants to see the authentic fonts. It's at 150% size to make it legible and to imitate the size in the emails. The only problem is that all non-Tandy emails show the Lappy font, which isn't too bad.

#bodyContent, #article {
   font-family: glitch0, commodore 64;
   font-size: 150%;
#bodyContent blockquote.tandy, #article blockquote.tandy {
   font-family: westminster;

--Another Freakin' Guy Named Daniel 04:20, 3 March 2007 (UTC)

#bodyContent, #article {
   font-family: commodore 64;
   font-size: 135%;
#bodyContent blockquote.tandy, #article blockquote.tandy {
   font-family: westminster;
#bodyContent blockquote.lappy, #article blockquote.lappy {
   font-family: glitch0;
#bodyContent blockquote.corpy, #article blockquote.corpy {
   font-family: sydnie;

What if a link is provided for the fonts? I have searched the internetz (yes, internetz), and have all three. I could make a .zip file of the three. Would that be okay? Note: I think one or two of them have been considered as "invailid fonts" by Mac OS X's FontBook 20:45, 4 September 2007 (UTC)
Once again, you are free to add the code provided to your Monobook.css, and even to provide links to download said fonts on your userpage, but a user-friendly page is more important than a page that mimics fonts to a tee. — Lapper (talk) 20:55, 4 September 2007 (UTC)
Since I don't have an account, I want to make my own CSS file and run it in Safari by going into Safari>Preferences...>Advanced Tab. How would I code the file?

Wait, nevermind. The coding is done. I decided to validate it, and it had 10 warnings, 2 of which were major. Despite the warnings, are people having problems with this? :? 23:30, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

I edited the code so that it's at 135%, which is legible and also doesn't make the blockquote huge. --Mario2.PNG Super Martyo boing! 23:56, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

I would like to bring this up again from my anonny post two years ago (as Why wouldn't it hurt just to edit MediaWiki:Common.css so that it can use those the fonts the computers use, while still having Courier New as a fallback font? Soiled Bargains (talk|ctrb) 20:53, 7 October 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Compe code

Why is the compe code
instead of
<blockquote class=compe email>
like the others? Pgj1997 (Talk | contribs) 02:51, 12 May 2010 (UTC) (left unsigned)
Because the code for it is more complicated than the others so a template was made to make it easier to use. — Defender1031*Talk 09:11, 12 May 2010 (UTC)
Whoa Whoa Whoa Whoa Whoa Whoa, More complicated than the others? Could you please elaborate? Pgj1997 (Talk page · things I've done)
Sure. The HTML code involved requires a lot of tweaking to get the layout to look just right. The template you mentioned and accompanying end template handle all of that for you. The other layouts are simpler and can be handled from CSS with a single class define. — Defender1031*Talk 02:20, 2 January 2011 (UTC)
