Where to get fonts
The webfonts.info wiki has been a good resource for a long time. Especially check out: FontFont, Process Type Foundry, Font Bureau (Webtype), Typotheque, and Typekit — especially: Adobe, FontFont, Exljbris, Just Another Foundry, Mark Simonson Studio, Porchez Typofonderie, and TypeTogether.
Looking at type

Great intro at ALA, CSS @ Ten. Nice Web Type’s How to use CSS @font-face walks through Paul Irish’s bulletproof syntax and use of the Font Squirrel generator. For organizing font files, keep them with CSS.
Boilerplate comes with demo elements, so cover your bases by making sure all kinds of markup are styled. Richard Rutter’s The Elements of Typographic Style Applied to the Web touches on many important details.
