How do everybody,
righto here goes,
If I use a non system font in a website will everybody else see it on there PC/Macs or do I have to upload it somewhere?

it will be replaced by a default font on their system

there is a way to embed the font and the user downloads it automatically but this is an IE thingy

the only option is to use an image

Sifr - only reliable option. And it looks awesome

you can also specify the order of which fonts the local system should look for, and and it with a generic font family, as in:
body {font: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;}

cheers domedia,
I'll have a mess about with that, but on first look on their demo page, the fonts look a little fuzzy and not as sharp and clinical looking.

cheers
