My homepage currently uses 5 web fonts--I'd like it to be 6 due to spotty support for Helvetica Neue. One of the fonts is 'FontAwesome' icons, the other 4 are only used for a word or two (i.e. I have a heading that reads "Optimization" written in letters that look like an old computer).
2 of these fonts are available through Google and I request only the letters needed (and that works great). However, the other 2 are from openfontlibrary.org, and are only available in a single format. Which isn't a big deal (I'll need them securely anyway so local copies are better), a quickie with the Fontsquirrel.com @font-face generator and I have them in multiple formats, and the CSS to boot.
And then I test my page load time...ugh. I assume it would be possible for me to subset my local copies, anybody have have experience in this area?
