A few more resources:

http://www.w3.org/Style/Examples/007/fonts

http://www.w3schools.com/CSS/pr_font_font-family.asp

http://www.devlounge.net/design/better-font-families-in-css

http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2009/09/22/complete-guide-to-css-font-stacks/

If I want to use what I call a fancy font especially for the site
name, I create a transparent gif image and use it either as a
background or inserted over a background image.

Example:
