Really kind of a two part question. It's kind of an HTML question but I hope nobody minds that it's here.

How do I use a non-system font in HTML... Can I upload the .TTF file to my server and include a command line in the HTML?

Secondly, assuming that the above is possible. Will I be able to use the font as a 'system font' within the .swf and expect the host computer to have the non-anti-aliased result?

Any help would be appreciated

You can't use a non system font for HTML and guarentee it will look the same on all browsers .... in fact you can NEVER guarentee your fonts will look the same!

Your TTF idea won't work... and even if it did it would be very against the license for using your font!

The only way to guarentee it is to use a GIF of the text or use one of the more standard MS fonts with redundancy i.e.

<font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, Sans">
