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:
jrrvf.com - 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.

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

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!
