you have to be careful with calligraphy fonts on websites, as not all browsers support fancy fonts. There are a number of websafe fonts. For more info check this page on the very useful Web Style Guide
http://www.webstyleguide.com/type/cross.html
You can get around it by importing calligraphy text as an image, but the disadvantage is that search engines can't recognise the text (you would have to repeat all the text in the 'alt' tag), so you loose out on potential hits. Probably best to use sparingly as samples with 'alt' backup. Also, images are heavier on bandwidth, and the detail may be lost in compression.
