Is there a straightforward method for embedding fonts into an html document that does not bloat file size? Aditionally, is there any kind of script (not involving flash) that will force fonts to anti-alias?

Welcome, typophile! I've been eagerly awaiting the day when embedded fonts are universally supported... and I hear it's on the way. Here's an earlier discussion about the subject of web typography, with some good links:

Unfortunately, forced anti-aliasing I think is still a pipe dream... If anyone knows differntly, I'd love to know about it.

.. Yes this looks promising, however, the app is for win only and like all good graphic designers I am a Mac man. I have a Gates Gumball Machine here in my shop on the ethernet but all my best fonts are Post Script type 1. I could open them and re-save them as True Type in Fontographer but it seems to me that this app has some kind of license checker that only accepts certain font id numbers and would probably choke on a fontographer generated font. If anyone has any info on the Post Script/ Mac fonts embedding front please let me know.
