than Internet Explorer - or if You want to save and read the page later
offline too -, You should have this amharic fonts permanently installed in
Your computer. You may download the fonts here:

Windows 98 and Windows ME users may need to upgrade Internet Explorer to version 6 to view the Amharic font.
