Cufon is a fantastic way to embed fonts into your website, allowing you to not only move beyond the standard list of websafe fonts that we are all so incredibly bored with... but to present each and every font with crystal clear anti aliased edges. It's like embedding flash fonts in the page without the flash!
And now I just discovered that you can use the cufon framework to add gradients and shadows to the text as well. Amazing.
