Subject: [OPEN-ILS-GENERAL] Printing barcode fonts in web client


In the desktop client it was possible to print receipts with scannable barcode 
fonts. I've tried using basically the same string in the web client with the 
CodabarLarge font installed, but no luck. String: "<div style= "font-family: 
'CodabarLarge';">Barcode: {{patron.card.barcode}}</div>"


Am I missing something, or is this not supported in the web client?
