Kynn was asking about the downloadable part.

yes. What version did that get added to Mac IE? Does PocketPC IE
support any of that?

I agree, I have not seen an implementation of font synthesis, so when
CSS3 goes to CR that part is likely to get pulled out. However, the
part that Kynn was talking about has multiple implementations (and
even, multiple interoperable ones).
