“I’ve been using Cufón off and on since writing about font embedding back in May. It’s a great hack, but browser progress since that time has been making me feel that the native CSS @font-face rule is becoming increasingly viable. Or, at least enough so that it seems like it’s time to start dabbling.
Yes, I know of TypeKit. It’s a great idea and there are some solid reasons to consider using it. But I’m still interested in using the native technology from time to time, which is where we begin.
Ignoring the licensing issues for now, the problems are those of syntax and technology. Syntax because Internet Explorer requires you to import a different file than every other browser. Technology because, well, Internet Explorer requires you to import a different file than every other browser.”
