Adamina.  I have a couple hundred fonts on my computer.  No Typekit fonts work.

Okay.  What about the Edge Web Fonts that are supposed to be totally free and work/upload to my website

even if you no longer have a subscription?  They don't work.

Is there a solution?

Google Fonts work fine for me and millions of other websites.  Arial is a system font.  If you can't get Arial to display, the font on your computer is probably corrupted.   Best practice on web  pages is to use a font stack with fallback fonts just in case the 1st one is not available.  h1 { font-family: Arial, Helvetica Neue, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 24px; line-height: 26.4px; }For more font-families,CSS Font Stack: Web Safe and Web Font Family with HTML and CSS code.

Adobe fonts (formerly typekit) retired a whole bunch of fonts from their website.  You could replace Adobe fonts with  Google fonts, they're free.

I just tried Raleway and I'm pleasantly surprised that it works.  Are you saying that Google fonts will work?  Because I'm tried many fonts--Arial did not work--and they didn't and I don't mean Typekit.  There's no mystery or glitch?  It's solve by using Google fonts?  I would be very happy.

Thank you Nancy.  I don't use this program often--I need it because this is not my line of work!--

so I stumble a lot.  I think the issue was a text block.  Not sure what the problem was because I made sure

it wasn't touching anything else.  Once I deleted and remade it, it was fine/uploaded without complaint.

I'll go through all the fonts systematically and delete the ones that don't work so I can't keep revisiting them.

Don‘t understand the problem. In contrary to Typekit fonts Edge fonts (these are actually Google fonts) work, even if you stop your Muse subscription.

I don't know.  You are far more familiar with the program than I am.  It seemed to be something to do with the text frame.  Ir wasn't in conflict with any surrounding frames so I can only tell you what I did.  When I deleted that and rebuilt it, I was able to upload the page.
