For long time site developers suffered because they could only use few fonts on their resources. But, now the Google launched a new web service Google Web Fonts. This service gives you a possibility to use a different fonts from Google on your site. The using of fonts don't have any restrictions.

Here is a short description how you can do it in few steps:

Choose a font

To do this, go to a font directory of Google http://www.google.com/webfonts and choose one which you like.

Choose Google font

Get a code of chosen font

In this example will be used "Eater" font. To get a code of this font, you need to find something like this in the opened page:

Get code Google font

Then you need to add "/" to the end of tag, to avoid validation errors in HTML. So it should look:

<link href='http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Eater' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css' />

Copy the code above and put it after tag <head> like this:

<head>
  <link href='http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Eater' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'/>
  ...
  <!-- other HTML code -->
  ...

Adding CSS code to your page

Now you can use this font in CSS by setting property font-family. For example, if you want to apply this font to all headers of first level, you have to add the following CSS style:

h1 {
  font-family: 'Eater', cursive;
}
