Download the font files you want to use from their web source or insert any media with them on.

Open your Control Panel, double click the Fonts icon, click on File then select Install new font from the drop down menu.

Note that this will not help other visitors to your site see any specialist fonts that you use. The rule of thumb for websites is to use common font families so that they will display correctly regardless of operating system and browser.

Unusual fonts may be best embedded as image files or animations, with the obvious impact on download time for the page loading into the visitors browser.

Thanks Taran I managed to track down a free download of the font {tempus sans} when I made the web site at college I did,nt realise that it was not a regular font I might change it to a more common one if you want a look at the site

Since you're using FrontPage 2000 just let it handle your default page fonts. It normally does an excellent job at getting web fonts as they should be to appeal to various browsers and systems.

Once you start manually formatting though, you can get into a world of trouble. No matter which font you do choose, your browser will simply use a system default int he same size to replace yours if it can't find the necessary font.
