    Is there a way to control the height of a font?

    kind of like how you can with Photoshop?
    I'm not talking about line height... the actual words so they look "condensed" or smooshed down. I'm not talking about the size... just the height.
    I know you can control the line width?

    Or do you pretty much have to have a font that looks this way and then figure out how to getting the end user's browser to see that specific font if it's not one of the default ones on their computer?

    Yes, you have to have a font that looks that way at the onset. CSS rendering will not distort a font for you.

    Is there a way to have an uncommon font show up on someone's computer.

    I thought I read a while back that if you have the font file on a server there was some kind of script/code that would point to the font and load it through to the or maybe load it onto the end user's computer.

    For IE you can use WEFT, apart from that, no.
    The user can always override your font-family with a font of their own choice.
