I want to create a web site with Microsoft Expression. I am using a font called Univers LT Std 57 Cn / Open Type font. How can I embed it into an HTML page?
With Microsoft Web Embedding Fonts Tool (WEFT) it doesn't work! The program crashes. Is there a possibility to integrate that font with Microsoft Expression WEB; this integration should include the creation of the EOT files automatically?! Or is there any other possibility? Thanks for your help.
I did some WEFT work about five years ago. I didn't even know it was still available.
Generally, the ultra boutique fonts are reserved for small areas such as headings and logos, and as such are just rendered as images.
I saw something here: http://coffeecup.com that did font to image conversions, but keep in mind; if important text is in an image of flash file, it's likely that search engines and audible browsers won't "see" it.
Here are two options for using any font in a webpage . Those are really the only two modern, viable options. I don't recommend either but that's your only options.

There are as Chris said 2 different methods to embed fonts but neither has cross browser support AND then you have the whole copyright issue. Unless you own the copyright to the font you want to embed or create the font yourself you can't use it without a license to do so from the font maker which can be very expensive.
