    Question Rare Font

    I need to use a 'very' rare font on a page.

    Is my only solution 'using a .jpg file with the text on it'?

    If not, what are my other options?

    Thanks!

    you could look into sIFR .

    Other than that or embedding the font (which is a crap shoot), an image could be the way to go.
    Stop making things so hard on yourself.

    yep sIFR is very good, yhough I've not managed to get it workin' properly myself

    Other than that, all you can do is use an image.

    If it's for a header then make sure you include the header tags somewhere.

    For instance you could have

    Code:
    h1, h2, h3, h4 {
              text-indent: - 999em;
    }
    
    or:
    
    h1, h2, h3, h4 {
              letter-spacing: - 999em;
    }
    
    and:
    
    /* Just for Opera, but hide from MacIE */ 
    
    /*\*/html>body h1, h2, h3, h4 {
              letter-spacing : normal;
              text-indent : -999em;
              overflow : hidden;
    }
    
    Then you'd have something like:
    
    h1 {
              height: 200px;
              width: 400px;
              background: transparent url(images/header.png);
    }
    Of course you could apply this trick to any html text you wish to replace with graphics.
