How to install Google Web Font to Blogger?
Here is a step-by-step procedure from Simple Blog Tutorials, including:
1. How to get rid of the XML error:
Your template could not be parsed as it is not well-formed. Please make sure all XML elements are closed properly.
XML error message: The reference to entity "subset" must end with the ';' delimiter.

2. How to add the customized font to different sections on Blogger.

Browser Support for Google Web Fonts.
Per Google Font API, the browser compatibility are as follows:
Google Chrome: version 4.249.4+
Mozilla Firefox: version: 3.5+
Apple Safari: version 3.1+
Opera: version 10.5+
Microsoft Internet Explorer: version 6+

Technique #2. Using sIFR Generator.
This technique is more handy IF (1) your desired font isn't included in the Google Web Fonts directory and (2) you want a custom font COMPATIBLE TO ALL BROWSERS. However, this would require you to use an online sIFR generator and an account to host the javascript, flash (swf) and css files (e.g. Hostwebs or Awardspace for Blogger users.) The custom font may be added to post titles, sidebar titles, and even post content.
