There is currently only one browser that support '@font-face' and CSS 
2.1 requires at least _two_ implementations (that are not in conflict) 
before it gets added in.

However, '@font-face' is still in CSS3.

(You probably misunderstood one of the CSS 2.1 goals, it is a snap shot 
of current CSS useage.)
