set ttf font for window titles?

Is it possible to select a (downloaded and installed) ttf font for the window titles? I'm trying to use ProFontWindows.ttf, if that helps.

You should start with installing the font to your system (depends on the disto I guess). Once that is done use the following as font line in your i3 config:

font pango: ProFontWindows 10

10 is the font size, change it as you wish. You possibly need to install libpango library to make this work. Cf. user guide for some additional information.
