Hello, here is my code:

@font-face {
      font-family: blackjack;
      src: url('fonts/blackjack.eot');
      src: url('fonts/black_jack.ttf') format('truetype');
}

but this wont work in IE, but it will in Firefox.  This works in IE though:

@font-face {
      font-family: blackjack;
      src: url('fonts/blackjack.eot');
}

but then, obviously, it will not show in Firefox, or other browsers.  Can someone please let me know how to fix this?

@font-face{ /* for IE */
font-family:MyFont;
src:url(myfont.eot);
}
@font-face { /* for non-IE */
font-family:MyFont;
src:url(http://:/) format("No-IE-404"),url(myfont.ttf) format("truetype");
}
