Each visitor visiting this site will need to have this font installed to view it.  It will fall-back to a basic font as you see otherwise.  

If the font is embeddable you can try this: http://forums.adobe.com/message/3508995

you can use whatever font you want (as long as you have "rights" to it - of course)

Fontsquirrel.com makes this really easy. Just upload your font, and they'll spit out the necessary css and font files.


(You may need to specify the appropriate Mime types in your .htaccess file - this isn't always necessary)

You can use fontsquirrel and/or google fonts implementations, but in my experience the fonts from these services most of the time do not display the same in different browsers, I have run into issues with font-size, line-height, and spacing. So if you have content meant to fit in a certain space/area it might not fit in all browsers.

You can choose what font to fall back on, for example:

font-family: Apajarita, "Times New Roman", serif

Open in new window

in place of font (which should be used to declare all font properties sich as size and weight in one section)

as far as font-size, line-height, and spacing, you should set those explicitly in your css using px dimensions. If you want to use ems or percentages, make sure you normalize those items first, on something like the body tag.

But those issues are going to come up wether you use fontsquirrel, google, or web-safe fonts.

BTW, I am not advocating using Google fonts or any other font cdn. With fontsquirrel, you upload your own font, it gets converted to the appropriate formats, and you host them on your own server - you're in complete control.

If you want to use that font, which seems to be free from copyright then you need to add the following to the beginning of your css - just add in a proper path to it relative to your website.

@font-face {
      font-family: apajarita;
      src: url('/apajarita.ttf');
