I think it would be good to hear from them. Which font formats (EOT?
TTF? zip'ed TTFs?) can be used with Silverlight 1? Silverlight 2?

A blog from March 2008 indicates that Silverlight 2 would improve
(i.e., make it easier) to use webfonts in Silverlight [1]. But plans
may have changed? I'm not trying to be snarky, I'd just like to get
the facts on the table.
