They way I believe how fonts work, is that there are only a small limited amount of fonts available cross all browsers.

And if we want a font that is not supported we have to turn that button/link or whatever it may be into an image.

Is there anything out that allows us to use non-traditional font without having to turn them into images?

I thought I read something one time about an online font library you could use with your web sites?

It seems to me you could link to an extensive online font library resource (much like you do to a jquery library) and virtually pull up any font you want across all browsers? Is there anything like this?
