Thanks TJ!

Well, I updated my page:

@font-face {
    	font-family: myFont1;
    	src: url("fonts/times.ttf");
    	font-style: italic; 
    	font-weight: bold;
    
    }
    
...........................................

    #box{ 
        border: 1px solid red;
        background-color:#FFF;
        padding:10px;
        font-family: myFont1; 
        font-size:30px;
        display:inline-block;
        text-align: center;
        font-style: italic;
        font-weight: bold;
    }

In the "#box" (the 1st one on the screen), I only get the font, but font-style ('italic') and font-weight ('bold') still do not work for none of the browsers.

is that an issue for the browser?

Thanks,

The various font-* properties in @font-face do not style the font, they specify the *font's* style.  That is, your @font-face declarations above declare that when you use MyFont1 with italic and bold, you'll receive that face.  This allows you to specify multiple faces in a font, and declare which combination of font-* property values should use each face.
