Changing the Font in my blog post title- tried all basic steps (2 posts)

    A few months ago I changed my blog post title to a custom font that I had downloaded. If I'm remembering correctly, I had to do some fancy thing, like go to the original style sheet of the template that I bought, change the font name there, and then imbed it in my style sheet in wordpress, save it, and then go back in and delete it.

    Does that sound right? I know I had to do that for something, but I have done SO much customization on this, and I know NOTHING about this kind of stuff- it was all trial and error, hence why I now can't remember how to do it.

    I've been through the current style sheet on my wordpress site and changed the font name there, but it doesn't change the font.

    HELP! My site is ALMOST done, that and a little post alignment problem are the only things I have to figure out before I'm done!

    Give Google Fonts a try...easy basic steps..

    The meta tag goes in head section of header.php and we call the fonts in the stylesheet where that font is desired.

    Example:

    In head:
    <link href='http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Roboto+Slab' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>

    in CSS:

    font-family: 'Roboto Slab', serif;

    and we don't have to download anything or risk a bad download (then added to our server env.), the font is loaded quickly from Google's massive server network.
