I have a new website that uses a non standard font, made by designers. The new fonts are installed on windows/fonts of webserver but client machines when open the website don't see the webpages well formed, because the new fonts don't show up.
What can i do?

The way how web page is displayed is depending on client. During design time, it is important to use common and compatible font list, the used font could be define with HTML code or CSS.
If you must use certain font to support localization or other reason, please make sure fonts for your encodings have been installed on client side. That could be add through in Regional Options and Language Option of Control Panel. Besides, Internet Explorer
allows you to select fonts to be displayed on webpages for certain Language script. The option is from Internet Options -> General -> Fonts.

I know that web page is displayed is depending on client browser and configuration, but there are another way, without manual configuration at all clients to install the fonts in the client computers?
This is very important because the web designers was created this new fonts and all web site design are compromised without this fonts.
Thanks for your help.

Like has been stated the fonts are on the client machines.
Have the web designers ever designed a website before?
