I am having a hard time trying to get/make/change a font to make it like an outline font. Here is my problem, the background on my site is multicored and I want to make it so that the font is outlined but i want the inside of the outline to be white, not the background color. Does anyone know how to do that? Plus if I try to use an outline font the inside of the font is the same color as the bg color. So maybe there is a specific type of font or some code that will help me change and existing font to work like that.
Thanks for the help.

I think that this would mean knowing how to change the fill color and the outline color on a font.....

I don't see how you can have a font in two colors at once, unless you make an image of it. Are you going to use this for all text or just a word or two?

well what i want to do basically is make it so that the filler font in the text isnt the same color as the background. For example, if the bacground is green then I want the filler color to be white and the outline black. Because waht normally happens is that the filler color is green and what you can change is the outline color

How do you "normally" do to have a font in two colors? mellow.gif

I guess the OP means the font is transparent except for the outline, so that the background-color shines through.

Using additional colors might be possible with certain proprietary IE filters, otherwise by making an image. Maybe also with Flash, but that's not recommended for important content.

I meant that's how the OP's font probably works now, since you asked how you "normally" do to have a font in two colors.
