How to use a specific font with the Catalyst theme WordPress

Hi Guys

I'm doing a site for a client and they have specified a font they want to use.

The font is Futura

http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/bitstream/futura/

How do I go about installling that particular font so I can use it on the site.

Does it work like Google fonts where you can add a scrift to your theme to call the font?

Thanks
Steve

Another posibility is use CUFON with this plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-cufon/.

You won't need Google Fonts.


Francisco Javier Carazo Gil comments:

If you want to use Google Fonts:
1. Enter in http://www.google.com/webfonts and choose your font
2. Copy generate code into the <head> of our page (often in header.php) something like: <link href='http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Mr+Dafoe' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>
3. Use your font in CSS as another usual font, i. e.: body { font-family: "Tangerine", serif; font-size: 48px; }

The above fonts are somewhat close to "Futura" font...

Or you can use the suggestions provided by the experts above...
