CAn't figure out how to load purchased "Webfonts" intoFreeway Pro 6.1.2 - can anyone help me please?

I have purchased a small number of Webfont (3rd party web-safe fonts) from MyFonts (ITC) and a family of fonts from Linotype, and I cannot figure out, understand how to properly store them into Freeway Pro 6.1.2 so I can use them.

Also, strangely, all of the actual font files I downloaded after purchasing have numbers on the actual font files instead of font names and versions (for example: roman, italic, demi bold and demi bold italic, etc.)

The family of four “related” Linotype fonts include four files, each with its own “extension” one for each font - each having a different extension at the end of each (even though the font name is a number):
they are “.svg” / “.ttf” / “.eot” and “.woff”

The MyFonts font is an ITC font (Grimshaw Hand), and there is only one weight, and for some reason again there are again only a font files with the following suffixes at the end of each (and again, each font only has a number in place of a font name):
“.eot” / “.svg” and “svg_test.html”

Can someone help me please…

Also can you please explain which of these FOUR extensions are NECESSARY for a web font to work properly as such through Freeway Pro?
I would very much like to actually TALK with someone for several minutes, as I am totally lost regarding this - and cannot even begin to do any work on the site if the fonts I am to use are not available to me…

PLEASE GET IN TOUCH WITH ME ASAP.

Thank You,

These are not all necessary for you to work with the font in FW Pro - but are necessary for different Web Browsers and OS.

Typically this is the sort of code that you will require to get your fonts to display across all platforms

@font-face {
  font-family: 'AnonymousPro-Regular';
  src: url('/_webfonts/AnonymousPro-Regular.eot?#iefix') format('embedded-opentype'), 
       url('/_webfonts/AnonymousPro-Regular.woff') format('woff'), 
       url('/_webfonts/AnonymousPro-Regular.ttf')  format('truetype'),
       url('/_webfonts/AnonymousPro-Regular.svg#svgFontName') format('svg');
}

Exactly which fonts and which file types do you have?

These fonts (yourfont.eot, yourfont.woff, yourfont.ttf and yourfont.svg) will need to be uploaded to a public accessible folder/location on your server.

However there are some actions that can help with the whole process ie Caxton, http://actionsforge.com/actions/caxton and Web Fonts FreewayActions.com | Web Fonts
