Just a friendly reminder to you all that "OpenType font data" in the  
spec means that any EOTL made using CFF fonts (typically having a .otf  
suffix, and the format of fonts from Adobe and many other foundries)  
will not work on IE <= 8.

The font flavor of an EOTL, whether TrueType or CFF and hence whether  
IE compatible, may be determined by checking the first 4 bytes of the  
"OpenType font data": 'OTTO' for CFF fonts (IE-interop = no); 'true'  
or 0x00010000 for TrueType (IE-interop = yes).
