Does an applet use the fonts from the server from which it originates or does it use the fonts of the client machine?

The client machine. There's no mechanism in Java for remote font loading, and as far as I know, no way to pack a font into the applet's JAR and use it. Fonts - even in this day and age - tend to be sensitive to the OS/display manager they're used with.
