That's not true. Netscape 4 doesn't support several important
font styles, and apparently no browsers support text-shadow or
downloadable fonts as per CSS2.

So if I wanted to use a specific font (or a font with a drop
shadow, or a font that is stretched specifically, or even one with
kerning set right), I'll need to use a graphic.
