I don't know the details of font rendering, but if we converted it to letter
shapes, it should look the same on any supporting browser, I think. Then we
could include a PNG as a fallback.

@font-face is a way to load a reference to a font that you can then use in a
CSS font-family definition. Most browsers now support it, although IE only
had partial support until v9 (http://caniuse.com/#feat=fontface ). Browsers
that don't support it would just use fallback font families as is normal
with CSS.

The top ones look fine to me, but I'll let other people comment on
typographic matters! Hope this isn't getting too frustrating - we should
have a decision soon.

Thanks,
