Alternate Font Embedding in CSS: by Google

Google is currently beta testing its latest takeover bid for the galactic empire: embedding font alternatives into sites, served from their data-clusters (natch). We’ve heard the promise of this within HTML 5, though Google’s solution provides a practical, near-term solution for the current browser families.

Have a look: http://code.google.com/webfonts

Upon selecting a specific font, Google provides an embed code for the [head] tag. The API generates the necessary CSS. Once the [head] tag is in place, the CSS references the font as seen in the familiar [sans] vs [serif] font stack embedding code.
