Allow font download from Dreamweaver

I'm creating a site in Dreamweaver2 that uses a font that no-one is going to have on their boxes (yeah, I know, that's what I said to the media consultants, but the customer wants it).
No problem in creating styles with this font on my dev machine, but how do I allow the viewer to download the font family?  I'm not a JAVA coder, but do I need a JAVA applet for this?
Honestly don't know how difficult this is - will increase the points if appropriate.

Sorry its taken a while to get back to you, boycey.  I'm checking it out now, and if I can generate a font definition file from the info in this link, you get the "A".

OK - for anyone who pays to see this as a PAQ, here's what I found:
How downloadable fonts are handled is browser-dependant.

For Netscape, you need to generate a Portable Font Resource file (eg blah.pfr) - use HexWeb Typograph 2.0 from http://www.hexmac.com/

For IE, you need to generate a Embedded Open Type file (eg blah.eot) - download Microsoft's Web Embedding Font Tool from http://www.microsoft.com/typography/web/embedding/weft/

This article gives some lowdown on the different way you code DHTML to achieve the same effect in both browsers:

Now all I have to do is see if Dreamweaver's style sheets will code for both - if not, I'll add the appropriate tags manually.
