Not exactly, however you can specify which fonts to use if the font YOU want to use doesnt exist...

Code:
    font-family: Georgia, "Times New Roman", Times, serif;
Put that within a class, and the top priority font will be Georgia, then if Georgia cannot be found, times new roman - if TNR cant be found then it will be times - Failing times, serif will be used.

Instead of using text, make the fonts Images. just use some sort of graphic program like GIMP or something. Then in whatever code you use place the image where you would put the. Somewhat time consuming and harder to edit, but it might be worth it.

It depends entirely on what the web page will be about. If the web page is just for displaying content the user will have no problem viewing the font, however if it is for some sort of web-based application I suggest you stick to the standar form textbox, this is neat and tidy plus its ready-made !

Hope this helps, goodluck !
