Using @font-face with EOT fonts in Internet Explorer, not loading/displaying correctly

This is my first time trying to use @font-face. Here is my home page:

http://www.genspangroup.com/v3/default.asp

Fonts work fine in Safari, Chrome and Firefox. They don't display in Internet Explorer. I made EOT versions of my fonts, and thought that I coded the CSS correctly:


@font-face {
            font-family: Gotham Book;
            src: url('http://www.genspangroup.com/v3/fonts/GothamHTF-Book.otf'),
            url('http://www.genspangroup.com/v3/fonts/gothamhtf-book-webfont.eot') format("opentype"); /* IE */
      }
@font-face {
            font-family: Gotham Bold;
            src: url('http://www.genspangroup.com/v3/fonts/GothamHTF-Bold.otf'),
            url('http://www.genspangroup.com/v3/fonts/gothamhtf-bold-webfont.eot') format("opentype"); /* IE */
      }

Is something not right? Thank you!

You need to reference IE version first. Look at this page, its cross browser compatible solution.

Got it, thank you. Seems to be working now, just had the syntax a little off.
