While I am surfing around, I discovered that Google made good on their promise to release the VP8 codec they obtained from their acquisition of On2 earlier this year as a royalty-free open alternative to other video codecs. This isn't of much use right now to end users, but hopefully this will result in a more ubiquitous and portable web video standard.
Google has a new API that enables you to easily embed a selection of fonts into web pages. It seems to work!
Try googling for "Google Font API" for more information.
Or you could merely click this link.
