Ever want to do a design for the web but are totally dismayed to find the font families available are very limited. There aren't many fonts to choose from when you want your design to look the same across all browsers.

Mike Davidson and Mark Wubben take the credit for this great solution called sIFR (Scalable Inman Flash Replacement). It takes the normal text within your page and places a flash movie over the text with whatever font you want. So your plain, boring text is hidden with a flash movie of identical content and your personal, fully-cross-browser-compatible font. You can learn a lot more by checking out their site. It takes a little effort to set up, but works good and is virtually seamless.
