    Cufon is awesome.  You generate a font, then attach it and the Cufon.js to your site.

    What you get is instant client-side text replacing.  If done properly you won't even see the text popping to your Cufon font.  Even better, it supports all but the oldest browsers (even works on IE6!)

    I prefer Cufon over other flash based alternatives because (and obviously) we're not relying on a plugin to be installed...just javascript enabled.

    1) use at the bottom of the page above your .js scripts (like google analytics)
    2) Older browsers w/out a css selector engine need the jQuery library loaded before cufon
