Huge step in web typography

"Every major browser is about to support the ability to link to a font. That means you can write a bit of CSS, include a URL to a font file, and have your page display with the typography you expect. For designers and developers, this is a significant step forward. No longer will you need to trap your content in images or Flash just to express yourself visually. Pages will be more usable, accessible, and indexable. This is a massive upgrade for the web."

Typography has really come a long way, hasn't it? Before, websites only used simple fonts such as Arial and Georgia, and they relied on slideshows and videos to showcase more creative fonts. Had typography not evolved the way it did, the WWW might have been dominated with Verdana -- or worse, Comic Sans. LOL!
