Thanks for the great round up.
I’ve tried several font kits from FontSquirrel, but the display quality of the fonts is not convincing. Either the conversion into EOT or SVG causes this, or the browsers are simply not up to the task to handle fonts on that level.We’re still not there if we want to achieve good legibilty. But if we want to fool around with exotic fonts to show off that web fonts are technically here, then that’s OK, I guess.
I discovered that if you resize the font to some arbitrary size (I used the font-size: 62.5% thing that makes 1em=10 pixels) then the rounding errors completely destroy the look of most fonts. I took this out, and the fonts suddenly sorted themselves out.
