Thanks for the great walkthrough, Leah. We've got a couple features in the works to make this a lot easier. @Doug, we do a lot to make using webfonts easier. Here's a couple reasons: 1. Most fonts don't include web use in their licensing. You can certainly link to a font from your blog's CSS, but it's likely a violation of the end user license. 2. There are many browser support issues you'll need to worry about. Currently, we serve EOT files to Internet Explorer, the new WOFF format for Firefox 3.6, and a protected version of OpenType to other browsers. Plus, each version is optimized to display as clearly as possible. That's a lot of work for most blog owners to do.

You're right, Geo. The @font-face rule is a standard way to put fonts on your site. We built Typekit to help out with that for two reasons: 1. Most fonts don't include web use in their licensing. You can certainly link to a font from your blog's CSS, but it's likely a violation of the end user license. 2. There are many browser support issues you'll need to worry about. Currently, we serve EOT files to Internet Explorer, the new WOFF format for Firefox 3.6, and a protected version of OpenType to other browsers. Plus, each version is optimized to display as clearly as possible. That's a lot of work for most blog owners to do. Try out our free trial and let me know what you think.
