Hi,
Is is possible to assign a font to use with CSS from a file. Like sIFR just not with it.

You can specify a font like this for any tag. However you cannot download a new font that isn't installed, which is why I placed a list of fonts to choose from if available.

p {
font-family: Verdana, Arial, "Time New Roman", serif;
}

* In the current implementation of web standards: I believe Safari and Mozilla have recently added the @font-face (http://www.w3.org/TR/2002/WD-css3-webfonts-20020802/#font-descriptions) CSS3 rule, and Internet Explorer has had a partial implementation since version 4 (however, this only works with fonts in the proprietary .eot file extension.)

Cyan...you just muddy the waters every time.

Basically its impractical for the most part in today's web. In a few years, perhaps it will be possible.
