Hi all. I could have sworn I saw an article about how to link fonts to a website you were building. Basically it would allow you to put a line of CSS in your style that would pull the font you wanted from a remote location. This would be useful in allowing a designer/developer to break away from the ordinary old Arial, Times etc. Not sure where I found it and I have been on some heavy meds the last couple weeks for an ear infection, so it may have been a dream. :) Can anyone help me? I'll share my meds. :) Just kidding.

And if it is possible, is anyone using this effectively across browsers? I would think this could be very useful in cutting down on the number of images needed to complete a design.

Was it font embedding you were thinking about?



Probably something you'd have to think very carefully about doing though.

sIFR is another alternative. Good thing is that the text can be indexed by the bots but still use it with caution because it can significantly increase your page load time.
