    No, I'm fairly certain that the client needs to have the font installed on their local machine.

    Make up your website in a Word doc using your special fonts, take screenshots, and make your entire website a collage of .jpg files?

    Well if that's the case can you make your menu an image map and that way you can use whatever font you like? That way it will display on a clients machine just fine because it will be an image...

    I have three letters for you:

    PDF.

    EDIT: Oh, it's for a menu. Well, that's different. Keep the PDF idea on-hand for the next time you want to show a document with weird fonts.

    Just use standard fucking fonts. Please.

    There are exactly three fonts: serif, sans-serif and fixed. For something like a logo, make it an image. For regular text, those three fonts are enough.
