Hello,
I am trying to get a text replacement script working and I have run into a problem. I want the text replaced by a truetype font that is in a file with other styles of the font, I wanted to know if there is a way to specify a style or name for php to grab the right font style. It works with the font file but it seems to default to the bold italic version.
Any help would be great.
Here is the code :
<?php
/*
    Dynamic Heading Generator
    By Stewart Rosenberger
    http://www.stewartspeak.com/headings/    

    This script generates PNG images of text, written in
    the font/size that you specify. These PNG images are passed
    back to the browser. Optionally, they can be cached for later use. 
    If a cached image is found, a new image will not be generated,
    and the existing copy will be sent to the browser.

    Additional documentation on PHP's image handling capabilities can
    be found at http://www.php.net/image/

$font_color = '#000000' ;

$cache_images = false ;
$cache_folder = 'cache' ;
