Public Service Announcement: Watch Your @font-face font-weight

Many (especially decorative) web fonts come only in a few selected weights and styles. It's smart to load as few as possible since they can be quite heavy, but also make sure you only use them in the weights/styles you load otherwise the browser will fake it for you and muddy it up.
