Display issues between computer & iPhone (iPod Touch)

The site was designed using iWeb and is on .mac with a Yahoo domain. The site could be a tad faster - but it is A LOT of videos so I'm okay with that. The issue:

On a regular computer the site displays fine, whether it's Safari, IE or Firefox (although the drop shadows don't appear in Firefox). Each link represent a different page.

When viewing on my iPod Touch, my name (which was created using the Impact font), does NOT display correctly on most ofl the pages. ALL other text and links are correctly displayed. However on the Statement & Resume page - EVERYTHING, including my name is displayed correctly.

Ideas? Anyone seen this?

Thanks...

If you are designing a web site off of an non-standard font face be aware that not all browsers/computers are going to have the same font face and so you are going to run into issues if a person doesn't have the font. If you are wanting an exact layout with a non-standard font you are going to need to either use all flash, or images for your site.

The screwy thing is that a couple of the pages DO show up correctly. And they were created in iWeb as well. Thank you for your response.

Abraham's response pretty much nailed it, and it appears to be a bug(?) in iWeb. Although I didn't do anything differently in the design of my name on each page, apparently iWeb DID converted this section of the 2 pages that did appear correctly into image formats - which is why they were ok.

My solution, for those vaguely interested, was to copy my name with Impact font from iWeb into Preview, save it as a pdf file (which kept the alpha channel), and simply re-insert it on the needed pages back in iWeb. Quicker and simpler than Photoshop or Illustrator.
