I amusing Windings as font for pasword field in an IWP App
[Can't find a password "bullet" font that is by default installed cross plaform)
Work fine on Windows
It doesn't, it sucks on every platform.
Web pages will be rendered by the browser (anyone still using lynx?). The rendering of fonts in all web browsers is optional and depends on user settings and system resources.
I describe the practice of using fonts to disguise a password as a "modesty" system so that I can talk clearly to my clients about the difference between modesty and security. The problem with modesty systems is that they only work for good people and do nothing to prevent bad people from behaving as they will.
Yes but the client wants modesty, eyes open.
What are the brower/system settings to use with OSX? to make Wingigd render consistently with IWP.
Simliar for Windows ?
That's the problem in a nutshell. You can't rely on font formatting. Effort to Result ratio is out of whack.
