One of the big frustrations of getting your designs converted to your live website in the past is that many of the font types you like cannot be rendered unless the end user has that font type installed on their local machine. So you could create the fonts as image files and then render them them as images. This works OK for static pages. But what if you like a certain font type as your blog post titles. Creating an image each time you create a post just isn’t feasible. In recent years, a few options have been made available that allow you to use hosted font solutions that the server can push to the client’s browser.
Google has recently introduced Google Fonts, a hosted solution of selected fonts that are free to use if they fit your design. Select the font you want, get the code, implement it on your site. They also include downloaded TrueType fonts for working into your designs.
One of my favorite WordPress theme creators is WooThemes. Many of their themes, including some of the free ones, incorporate at these hosted font options.
