Alistapart has just publihed an article that describes the potential
of web fonts in combination with TrueType.


It also contains a small proposal for using media queries to check for
web fonts support:

  h1 { 
     font-family: "Trebuchet MS", sans-serif;  
     letter-spacing: 0.1em; 

  @media all and (web-fonts: "truetype") {
    h1 { 
      font-family: "Primer Apples", sans-serif;  
      letter-spacing: 0.2em;
