Display Barcode font in web page... - ASP.NET General

I need to create a report via a aspx page/datagrid and have the user be able to print it out and have certain fields have the 3of9 barcode font....is this possible in an aspx page (or for that matter html?) I know you can set the font of the page etc.. but can the font of a particular field in a datagrid be set? We do have a datagrid component that can export itself to Excel...is there something in Excel (template?) that can be used to set this 3of9 font?... thanks Doug -- Doug Swanson Senior Applications Developer Synchrono, Inc ...

    The problem is that most computers don'thave that font installed, in which
    case they will display the default font (usually Times New Roman). If you
    are sure that your users will have this font on their system, it's not a
    problem.

    If you are unsure that your users have this font, there are a couple of
    possibilities. If your users are all using IE 4 or above, you might want to
    look at Microsoft WEFT as a means of delivering the font to the user's
    browser. See:

    Another possibility is using graphics to display the text with the desired
    font. This is, of course, a bandwidth consumer, but works on any client
    machine.

    Another Thought
    You can generate the BarCode Font output as an Image using GDI+ on the
    server side
    then send the BarCode as Images to the Client
