Let us assume that you have uploaded .tff files in Fonts folder in root folder. To use them in your site, declare follow in .css as :

/* Font family for child contents*/
@font-face
{
    font-family: Colaborate-Regular;
    src: url('Fonts/ColabReg.ttf');
}

.pageHeader
{
    font-family: Colaborate-Regular,Calibri,Candara;
    font-size: 1.8em;
    padding: 3px 0 10px 2px;
    color: #463E3F;
    font-weight: bold;
}

Open in new window


But there are some limitations too.  Check out link: http://www.font-face.com/ for more details.
