Everyone knows about the limits of web typography and recently there have been several different technologies developed to address this.  Over the past few years I’ve experimented with sIFR and Cufòn, I have been wanting to try out @fontface for some time but had been put off by the need to purchase additional licenses for any half decent fonts.  When looking for a font to use for a recent project I can across this open-source foundry with gorgeous fonts all free and ready to use on the web with @fontface.  While I love the complete flexibility that something like Cufòn provides, there are still licensing issues with some fonts and I found the more fonts I used on a site I started to get a slight loading delay, this isn’t an issue with @fontface which simply uses CSS and an uploaded font file.  If more designers are willing to provide their fonts for free or at an affordable rate I can see this option becoming the web standard of the future.
