CSS @font-face and IE 7 & 8 404 errors
Whats the best way to handle embedded hosted fonts? IE requires an .eot font and doesn't know how to handle .woff and .otf so it eventually throws a 404 after the .eot loads.

You can see the issue in my test results:

Chrome, Firefox and Safari will load the .woff and skip over the .eot without making a request.

I have been contemplating serving a specific ie style sheet with only the .eot fonts but I hate the idea of browser specific style sheets. I guess I shouldn't be complaining with first load times under 1 sec on WordPress but I am a performance junkie.
