First, are fonts stored with the website, or does the site just link to the font file stored locally on the users computer?

If the later is true, and you want to use a more obscure font for your website's dynamic elements (ie. you can't just use photoshop to create a graphic), is there a way to upload the font file to the server, so that no mater what the font you want your users to see will always be there?

thanks,

Embedded fonts only work in IE. And to answer your first question the fonts are referenced via the viewers computer so if you define a font on your web page that the viewer does not have installed it will render a generic font like Arial.

can you specify the generic? CAn you create a script that runs when the page loads that downloads the font into thier fonts directory automatically?

A generic should always be specified.

Example: font-family { font1, font2, font2, generic }

generics are things like serif or sans-serif
