‘A small but welcome speed boost’

From the Typekit Blog: Now in Early Access: Serve web fonts without JavaScript

For most web developers, the CSS embed code is the most efficient way to add web fonts to your site. Using only CSS to deliver web fonts allows you to take advantage of newer advances in how browsers load and render fonts, and removing JavaScript code and execution from the loading process should provide a small but welcome speed boost.

Very nice! I just applied this here and it seems to be fast enough to avoid a FOUT, which has been major pain in the rear. Now nicely running one of my favourite fonts again.
