If you want to change the font of the whole html body, put:

body { font-family: FONTNAMEHERE; }

in the css stylesheet.

You can also make your own or edit h1/h2/h3/etc tags with:

h2 { font-family: FONTHERE; }

So when you call it in HTML it would be:

<h2>HELLO!</h2> for example

Hi,

The font you're wanting to use isn't a system standard font, therefore it will only display if the visitor has that particular font installed on their machine (which is probably unlikely).

An easy way is to use a flash library called Sifr. Sifr allows you to render text into your documents (as a flash movie) and will let you use any font you want. This will only work for machines with Flash installed which is something like 90% these days or so.

Sifr is the only way to display non-standard fonts in a website.

It uses flash, but you can still use css and normal html.
