I'd like to have a web site with "Times new" font.

I set this font in the .css file in this way:

____________

body {

  font-family: "Times Roman";

  font-size: 14px;

  line-height: 1.42857143;

  color: #333;

  background-color: #fff;

}

____________

and this work properly  on the web also ipad but not in the smatphone that show the font like "Arial".

I'm missing something?

Is there a way to set also in the smartphone the same font that I have on the web?

How?

Thanks.

Android's have their own system fonts --  Roboto and Droid.   If you want to change fonts, you'll have to do it through your phone settings.

Use a full font-stack to support the widest number of devices. 

/* Times New Roman-based stack */
font-family: Cambria, "Hoefler Text", Utopia, "Liberation Serif", "Nimbus Roman No9 L Regular", Times, "Times Roman", "Times New Roman", "Droid Serif", serif;
