CSS Font Face

Hi EE,

I have a few questions below in regards to using the CSS Font Face in a project of mine.

1.) How can I tell if the fonts I dowload from Font Squirrel are actually free to use for commerical use?

2.) Is there a particular font format that I have to use for FireFox, Opera, Chrome, and IE? Or can I just use the same file type for all browsers?

3.) What is the proper syntax for adding a font-face in CSS?

so i would need both the .eot and .tiff fonts for all browsers to use?
Yes. I believe font-squirrel will generate these for you if you use their @font-face generator.
