The topic of web fonts can be daunting for designers but the concept is quite simple: Consistency of site appearance is assured on most browsers and font designers are duly compensated for the use of their designs. Content is editable; no need to create image files for headlines, callouts, and other html elements.  It's a great step forward for web design and more fonts are being added by the providers daily.

Some of you already have experimented with web fonts. A simple tutorial is available on fonts.com. Another site that has information and links galore is this one. You can learn and try whatever you like with free and commercial web fonts. Enjoy, enjoy!
