The WP Google Fonts plugin allows you to easily add fonts from the Google Font Directory to your WordPress theme.
Why aren't all the Google Web fonts available in the plugin dropdowns?
We have to stop using this plugin based on a unfixed HTML validation error from 3 months ago.

Wonderful plugin ! Thank you !
Good idea but doesn't work for all fonts and all browsers. I stopped using it and instead use font-face and local storing of fonts. 100% reliable in all browsers.
Setup does not require API key, which is nice. To see what font you want, you would still have to go to Google Fonts. However, nice. Once you choose a font, it lets you choose which variants you want to use.
Very laudably, combines all the fonts you want into one call to Google fonts. Also, for custom CSS, he consolidates that into one block.
Once you choose a font, all the variants for that font show up, and you can choose whic ones you want. This is terrific.
One thing, is that some fonts have a variety of weights—e.g., Open Sans has 300, 400, 600, 700, and 800. To have total control here, you'd have to write out more specific CSS instructions--but there's a place to do that for each font.
What's awesome is that at the developer provides a place where you can assign "generic" selectors, such as "p" or "h1" to a certain font, but also a box where you can apply specific rules.
Muito bom !!!
Tonight I noticed there was a new version of this plug-in and foolishly (without thinking) - I updated. My blog is fairly new and I'd been playing with different script fonts, finally settling on one I really liked and FORGOT to write the name down. Now it's gone, and while this is a small thing, it's frustrating. Basically this is just a head ups to make sure you know all the fonts you're using before updating the plugin so you don't go through what I just went through. As well if you have any custom css in those boxes, better make note of that as well.
Helpful! Documentation left some questions which I was able to answer by myself.
Thank you for saving my Typographic a$$ :)!
Simple to use and does what it says.
