Both NS and IE support downloadable fonts.  The support different
standards, but then CSS2 doesn't specify anything about the format
of the downloadable font, only how to reference the resource.

The Microsoft tool for creating browser downloadable fonts is called
weft, and is somewhere on their typography site.

The other problem with downloadable fonts is that, at least for the
Microsoft format, they are tied to a web site, even if the copyright
on the font doesn't require this.

One trick I saw a couple of years ago was to use the Symbol font hack
with a downloadable font to produce Telugu pages.
