    The problem with a fonts picker is that you can only pick fonts that are installed on the user's computer.

    There are ways to allow the user to install more fonts, but you don't want to go around doing that all the time.

    But other than that, a fonts picker is trivial. Don't need *ANY* JavaScript of any kind.

    Code:
    <label style="font-family: Times Roman;">
        <input type="radio" name="font" value="Times Roman"/> Times Roman
    </label>
    <label style="font-family: Courier;">
        <input type="radio" name="font" value="Courier"/> Courier
    </label>
    <label style="font-family: Verdana;">
        <input type="radio" name="font" value="Verdana"/> Verdana
    </label>
    <label style="font-family: Arial;">
        <input type="radio" name="font" value="Arial"/> Arial
    </label>
    <label style="font-family: Papyrus;">
        <input type="radio" name="font" value="Papyrus"/> Papyrus
    </label>
    <label style="font-family: Monotype Corsiva;">
        <input type="radio" name="font" value="Monotype Corsiva"/> Monotype Corsiva
    </label>

    Yes, but note that unless you happen to have the font installed on your machine, you must download it from them.

    Are you ready to support free downloads of fonts to everyone who happens to come along?

    Hello Old pedant,
    I think your code works... but iam still testing ..tell me one thing ,in the above code used by you ,are these fonts installed on users machine or installed on webserver ???bcos i will download some more new fonts into my webserver ..iam sure user machine will not have such fonts ,what in that case???can i just use fonts name or should i need to specify the fonts path{in my webserver}????
    I NEED SLIGHT MODIFICATION IN YOUR CODE THAT IS ... I NEED TWO MAIN FONTS CATEGORIES "FONTS1" AND "FONTS2" BOTH SHOULD HAVE RADIO BUTTON ,AND THE NUMBER OF FONTS SHOULD BE CATEGORISED BETWENN THEM,,,, SOME WHT LIKE THIS ..

    FONT1[with the radio button] should contain:
    Code:
    <label style="font-family: Times Roman;">
        <input type="radio" name="font" value="Times Roman"/> Times Roman
    </label>
    <label style="font-family: Courier;">
        <input type="radio" name="font" value="Courier"/> Courier
    </label>
    <label style="font-family: Verdana;">
        <input type="radio" name="font" value="Verdana"/> Verdana
    </label>
    FONTS2[with the radio button] should contain:
    Code:
    <label style="font-family: Arial;">
        <input type="radio" name="font" value="Arial"/> Arial
    </label>
    <label style="font-family: Papyrus;">
        <input type="radio" name="font" value="Papyrus"/> Papyrus
    </label>
    <label style="font-family: Monotype Corsiva;">
        <input type="radio" name="font" value="Monotype Corsiva"/> Monotype Corsiva
    </label>
    so FONTS1 contents should be displayed only when it is selected and inthe same way FONTS2 contents should be displayed when that is selected..HOPE YOU GOT IT NA?? PLEASE ANSWER BOTH OF MY QUESTIONS...Thanks in advance
