    If you embed it into a graphic then there are no issues. The graphic will display the same on any browser/computer.

    Thanks for all the replies.
    I am basically looking for fonts to embed onto pictures and whatnot, not for any text. Would others still have issues viewing?
    Websites like this: http://www.gap.com/browse/home.do?ssiteID=AT
    have fonts that are not on normal computers.

    Unfortuantely, there is no basic work around on this. When you choose a font in an HTML document, the browser checks the fonts installed on your machine and then displays it. When you put it online, and a visitor comes to see your page, the browser then checks THEIR machine to see if they have that font installed. If not, the browser chooses the next one in the list. There is simply no way to install a font on someone else's computer, for various security reasons.

    With that being said, there IS a way to have custom fonts display on a website, regardless of who has them installed or not. The problem is, that its very tricky to implement and a pain in the butt. I will provide the link but we will not be able to assist, implement, or troubleshoot this for you. Also, our designers are not able to offer this as custom work so, be forewarned :) Use it at your own risk.

    That's about all there is to it. You do not want to use special fonts in text, you need to use "web-safe" fonts, ie. fonts that are found almost universally on all computers.

    My favorite font site is - http://www.MyFonts.com for high-quality fonts.
    You can search using a description such as "Girly", type in your sample text, and see it "live" on the site.
