Hello! I am wondering how to use the Tengwar for others to see on a webpage!!! Can anyone tell me how to do so??? Also, if it involves programming, I have a background knowledge of that too!!!

There are various Tengwar web fonts available. Those are your best bets these day. Look at the Tengwar use on glaemscrafu for examples: - Glǽmscrafu – Tolkien’s linguistic cellar

It is polite to ask the font authors for permission first.

Depend on what you are doing, a transcription library can also help. Look at glaemscribe:

The typeface Tengwar Annatar is available as a webfont, perhaps that's the simplest way to include Tengwar in a website, only some CSS tweaking is required, and it won't require your visitors to have the font installed on their devices.

That's great! Thank you both for the information!

yeah i've made great experiences using CSS's @font-face on my website...

I have used @font-face on the Tengwar Annatar font, and I am proud of how fun it is to code with this script!

+Wesley Stump if you can pls share the address with us:)

I will share the address as soon as I finish the beta version of the project! I plan on making a friendly Elvish chat website that allows users to send messages to each other in the Tengwar script!

I have no clue if someone has already done this, but if they have, then I just want to have a place where me and my pals can send messages to each other in elvish!
