Google FontsHey everyone. Check this out. http://code.google.com/webfonts

Google is now giving us access through their APIs to select fonts we can use on our web pages! Quick and easy. All we have to do is select the font we want, put the required API code into the header and start using the font!

Of course, herein lies the problem… design.  If anyone uses any kind of WYSIWYG editor, the font will not display in that WYSIWYG until you actually VIEW the webpage itself, making some spacing and whatnot a bit awkward.  HOWEVER, they would definately be cool for header tags and whatnot where spacing really is not an issue.

Who is sick of using Arial, Times and Helvetica!?  Me me! Thanks Google.

And for those of you who do not know, be sure and check out http://www.fontsquirrel.com/fontface/generator so you can use the Font Face Generator to embedd ANY font into your webpage. A bit more work than Google, but the freedom of all fonts! (Of course, provided you follow the EULA, blah blah blah.)
