Type study: An all CSS button « The Typekit Blog
The button is also a great place to showcase many of the new CSS3 properties in one place, which is another reason I’m particularly taken with buttons at the moment. Through the use of box-shadow, text-shadow, border-radius, and CSS gradients, we can create highly polished interface components that don’t require images.

Schema | Testing Cufón, @font-face, and Typekit
In summary, I would recommend Cufón for headings, with the warning that links may not display as nicely as you’d like. @font-face is promising, but the lack of available fonts really limits you. I really like Typekit, and I already use it for my personal blog.

My Love/Hate Affair With Typekit – Jeffrey Zeldman Presents The Daily Report
If not for Typekit, we might have had to wait years for most or all type designers to license web fonts. Thanks to Typekit, we all know about the problem, and type designers are re-hinting their fonts, and in some cases redesigning them for the screen. For all this I and all of us can be grateful to Typekit.

All this said in Typekit’s favor, I have mixed feelings about their product because I’d rather buy a web-licensed font than rent it.
