Google Webfonts is an easy and free place to get web fonts, as well as font squirrel.
But here is where it gets cooler, GuideGuide is a free photoshop extension that allows you to create grids on the fly. “By using GuideGuide you can create more accurate columns,rows, midpoints, and baselines with one click.” Then, there are code editors like CODA 2 that can make coding for the web a breeze.
