I want to use Myriad Arabic in our website at work, and the developer told me it is not showing the font family even though he embedded it in the html and css, and it doesn't show! This is very frustrating! Can anyone help me?

Answers to questions like this are contained in the code that was used to create the website.  

 

Unfortunately, you can't use non-standard font-families online because most people don't have them installed on their devices.

 

For best results, stick with web safe font-families common to most Win/Mac machines from CSS Font Stack or switch to hosted font solutions like Google Fonts or Adobe Fonts (formerly Typekit).

Hi!

I actually used an adobe fonts font, it said it was web supported with a
code snippet on how to insert it into the code, but it didn't work!
Obviously not all adobe fonts are "web safe" as claimed, because if the
user doesn't have the font installed, it doesn't show!
Am i missing something? I wish i am, because i want to use this font
"Myriad Arabic", and i paid for a subscription and i'm not even getting the
full service as claimed by adobe!

Thanks!

Myriad Arabic from Adobe Fonts is approved for use on Commercial Projects, Websites, Logos and PDFs.

https://fonts.adobe.com/fonts/myriad-arabic#usage-section

 

"Didn't work" doesn't tell us anything.  Can you post the URL to a problem page please?  It goes without saying that you must have an active Creative Cloud plan to use Adobe Fonts.  And the code in your site must be free of errors. Without a link to the project page, it's impossible to say for sure what's missing.  But done correctly, it should work for everyone who visits your site.
