Write it in Photoshop or one of those image editors, using your custom font, then save it as a picture file.  Insert the picture file onto your website.  I believe there are a limited number of fonts in basic HTML code.

Other than making an image of it, implementing a custom font or font other than the usual choices (arial, helvetica, times, etc) is rather complicated and something many web designers try to get around. Fonts are important to the design aspects of a site just as it is for a magazine or advertisement. It changes the whole feel of a page. However, the embedding of fonts works differently for all browers and makes it cumbersome on the designer to accomodate it's viewers.

Search for embedding fonts and you'll have quite a bit of reading on the subject. I did this for a while on my vendicta site, but since Adine Kirnberg is such a small font I had to make the css font size something like 30. That means those that couldn't see it or those that didn't want to download the font got a really jacked up view of my page with 30pt Arial. I just removed it and decided "pretty" was not as important as functional.
