The sharp fonts you find in Photoshop, we need to create that on a website through CSS. Making the font look smooth

Smooth fonts aren't considered 'sharp' because they are actually blurred or 'antialiased'. The fonts you see in Photoshop are not available in most web browsers unless they are installed in the operating system. So this limits what is available in the browser. You can only specify four possible fonts with css out of a safe seven or so and, even then, only one or two will work.

The only other way to include Photoshop fonts is to display them on the web as an image but this is not always a practical idea because images can take a long time to download compared to text.

The other way is (Flash Text). With it, u can use any TrueType font u have installed on ur computer. And BTW, the flash file is usually smaller than the same text rendered as an image.
