Is there a way to allow a certain font be viewable on a website even if the user does not have it available on their computer?  In other words, is there any code out there that will supply the font for the user so that when they view the website, they will not get a substitute font for the website because it is not supplied on their computer, instead they will be able to view the font that was intended for the site.  I really don't want to make a graphic because that will hurt the website's chances for SEO.

No is the answer. For security reasons, you cannot force download a font type onto a user's computer. A nice web page designer will provide other readable fonts after the preference font ( font family = "MyFont", "Tahoma", "Arial") and offer a link to download the font if the user choses to.
