You are trying to use @fontface, or you just have a different type of system. What do you do? You have to match the font format selected for your chosen system or browser. Here’s a list of the different types of font types.
.AFM - Adobe Font Metrics
An .AFM file provides both global metrics for a font program and the metrics of each individual character.
Compressed file that is encoded as binary or MacBinary; stores a finder header, data fork, and resource fork; ensures the Macintosh Hierarchical File System (HFS) resource fork and data fork are both kept in one file; commonly used to transfer Macintosh files over the Internet.
.CFF - Compact Font Format
Compact Font Format (also known as CFF font format, Type 2 font format, or CFF/Type 2 font format) is a lossless compaction of the Type 1 format using Type 2 charstrings. It is designed to use less storage space than Type 1 fonts, by using operators with multiple arguments, various pre-defined default values, more efficient allotment of encoding values and shared subroutines within a FontSet (family of fonts).
.DFONT - Datafork TrueType
Datafork TrueType is a font wrapper used on Apple Macintosh computers running Mac OS X. It is a TrueType suitcase with the resource map in the data fork, rather than the resource fork as had been the case in Mac OS 9. It uses the file extension .dfont.
.EOT - Embedded OpenType Font
Embedded OpenType (EOT) fonts are a compact form of OpenType fonts designed by Microsoft for use as embedded fonts on web pages.
.OTF - OpenType Font
OpenType is a cross-platform font file format developed jointly by Adobe and Microsoft. Adobe has converted the entire Adobe Type Library into this format and now offers thousands of OpenType fonts.

.PFA - Printer Font ASCII
.pfa is ‘Printer Font ASCII’ - a file extension for a Postscript font
.PFB - Printer Font Binary

.T42 - Type 42 font
TrueType font embedded in PostScript wrapper
.TTC - TrueType Collection
TrueType Collection (TTC) is an extension of TrueType format that allows combining multiple fonts into a single file, creating substantial space savings for collection of fonts that only use different glyphs on some characters. They were first available in Chinese, Japanese, and Korean versions of Windows, and supported for all regions in Windows 2000 and later.
.TTF TrueType Font
TrueType is an outline font standard originally developed by Apple Computer in the late 1980s as a competitor to Adobe’s Type 1 fonts used in PostScript.

It’s crazy that this great e-commerce system (and honestly it’s pretty good except for the shipping issue) isn’t prepared with a real time UPS, FedEx, DHL, and USPS plugin encoded inside from the get go.
We also found that this site is also developing for VirtueMart 2.0, but are not yet finished. sign up to their mailing list to be alerted for when it will be done:
DCJ Cool Tools Comment:
“At the moment, our shipping modules are only supported by VirtueMart 1.1.x and Joomla! 1.5. However, we are currently developing a VirtueMart 2.0 and Joomla! 1.7 compatible version. I can’t give you an exact time frame at the moment, but we hope to have it complete in the next month. We will be sure to let you know when it becomes available”
Everyone has been looking for a simple way to create 3D text in After Effects. You may have searched all 300,000 results only to hear ‘it’s not possible yet’ or ‘here’s a workaround - millions of layers!’ And then you sigh in despair because your project is due in 2 hours.

Are the “technical” parts of setting up an e-commerce website holding you back?
What if I could tell you, that you could avoid all of those headaches?

There is… and it’s called the Market Theme.
