I don't know about fonts. Got mixed feelings.
+ sure it's better to do download a font and then use it over a graphic substitution in many places on a site
- but is it worth it to download it just for one title ? for one logo ?
+ sure if gives more control to the designers
- but if it becomes usable (IE .. ) then won't it be abused to no end ?
And then there's the big one:
I've a license of font X on my computer, I can use it in adobe illustrator to do print work for a customer, no problem. It'll even embed what's needed in the pdf's I upload to a digital printer (not the device, the company that does high volume stuff).
But Oh, use that same font that's part of my customer's identity in a web page: ah no the license prohibits that use ...
So, for now: it's a long list of fonts in the font-family. no downloadable fonts even not in browsers that are smart enough.
