Håkon is very persuasive, but Prince has supported @font-face rules 
since its very first version in 2003. What we didn't support was HTTP 
for loading resources, not even documents and style sheets. (Clearly our 
priorities differ slightly from web-browsers). When we added support for 
HTTP in 2007, it applied uniformly to all resources: documents, style 
sheets, XInclude, images, and fonts.

Best regards,

Michael
