    I have heard there is relatively new technology that allows for multiple fonts that don't need to be default ones that come with windows. The code uses online fonts instead of looking locally for users fonts installed of their pc. My question is basically what are the limitations if any and where can I learn how to incorporate this in my own sites?

    I like to use http://www.fontsquirrel.com/ and generate the @font-face kit to host on the server. This option allows me to use the font in Photoshop when I am creating the mockup.

    Be careful with FontSquirrel, though. It's a very good resource; however, certain fonts (e.g. Adobe's Myriad font family) can't be used with FontSquirrel. If you try to upload them in some cases, you'll get a warning saying you can't use them. Some of them can even be uploaded, but won't work because of license issues. IE7, of all things, has a knack for being able to detect and not display unlicensed fonts.

    Thanks for the heads up. I will have to do some further research and demonstrations when I get a chance. I found this cool article if anyone wants to have a read http://webdesign.tutsplus.com/articl...ement-methods/

    I probably should have mentioned licensing. You'll want to look closely at the licenses on fontsquirrel. I'm cheap and tend to look for fonts that are free for commercial use. Some of them are for personal use only while others require you to link to the author or buy a license.

    I'm pretty cheap like that myself. I generally try to get them directly from fontsquirrel or google web fonts. That way, you know they're free and licensed for commercial use.

    Adobe Edge Web Fonts is another choice; I just learned about them this week.
