Apparently, the foundation are starting to come to a solution to web fonts and licensing.

Thanks for the post.

The whole font embedding thing is gathering pace now isn't it?

There was an article in Ars Technica about the font issue. I have been following the TypeKit issue (no relation to HammerKit ;) ) and I think that this is a really exciting development for the web in general. Check out the story and have a look at TypeKit - they are trying to tackle the thorny issue of licensing...
