How do I embed fonts using HTML?

I've got this code:<STYLE>
@font-face {font-family: "Nueva Roman";
            src: url(NUEVAR1.eot)}
H1 {font-family: "Nueva Roman", "Lithos Regular"}
P {font-family: "Myriad Roman", "Verdana"}
</STYLE>

This code works but I don't know how to make it a different font. Does the src url font have to be a .eot?

Thanks.

Yes, you need to use the Web Embedding Fonts Tool (WEFT2) in order to generate an .eot file.

For further details and download, take a look on :

Cool skynet home page Brice. I like the links on the revolving planets. Did you do that with Flash?
