Looking for a font similar to Georgia, but without the numbers dipping as they do


Question

Does anyone know a font that looks like Georgia, but where in the numbers are a consistent height and don't drip down oddly as in Georgia?

Better yet, is there anywhere I can get a .ttf or a .otf where in the numbers are adjusted?

I can't just manually adjust the font because I need it for font-face.

Taking a look at the Wikipedia entry for Georgia, they mention that it is influenced by Clarendon typefaces.

Here's Georgia:

Update

Not knowing your exact purpose, you might also want to consider simply using numbers from a more commonly available similar font. Times New Roman, for example, isn't too different, and mixing the numerals from Times with those of Georgia doesn't look too bad.

Here's an example:

Bitstream Charter has three things in common with Georgia: (1) it's about the same size; (2) its upper-case letters are less tall than lower-case ascenders; (3) it was designed by Matthew Carter. But Bitstream Charter has lined (non-descending) numerals.

Unfortunately I have no experience with @font-face, so I can't help you with that part of the problem.
