  • I use Expression Web for my web site, and Segoe UI is one of the fonts I can use. It seems to be a built in Windows font, per these links:

    https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/dn742483(v=vs.85).aspx

    https://www.microsoft.com/typography/fontinfo/en/

    Edit: The more I think about this, you do not need a license to specify this font on your web page. The client browsing the page must have the font. Also, when I specify a font in a style in my css, I specify several. For example, my style for code fragments is:

    .codeStyle {
    	font-family: "Courier New", "Courier", "Lucida Console";
    	font-size: medium;
    }
    

    If the client reading the page does not have the first font, then the second is used. If even the second font is not available, then the third is used.

  • Hi,

    You can specify any font-family (including Segoe UI) in your HTML or CSS file.
    But it depends on user's environment whether they can see Segoe UI (Segoe UI font is used in their browser). It depends if they have Segoe UI font in their computer. i.e. you can write code to indicate using Segoe UI in browser, but it does not mean that you are actually using the font.

    Regards,
