Hello,

I am working on this site. http://mit-c.net/alexsbeauty/

In Chrome you can see the Papyrus font being used - in Firefox and IE I cannot. Can you look at my CSS and let me know what I could be doing wrong.
/* --------------------------------------------------------------
1. GENERAL ELEMENTS
-------------------------------------------------------------- */
@font-face { font-family: 'Papyrus'; src: url('font/papyrus.eot'); src: url('font/papyrus.eot?#iefix') format('embedded-opentype'), url('font/papyrus.svg#Papyrus') format('svg'), url('font/papyrus.woff') format('woff'), url('font/papyrus.ttf') format('truetype'); font-weight: normal; font-style: normal;}

/* BODY */
body { font-family: 'Papyrus', normal; background:#aaa; color:#777; font-size:0.9em; line-height:1.8em; }
}
/* HEADINGS */
h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6 { font-family:'Papyrus', normal; color:#81a06c; line-height:1.2; margin:20px 20px 20px 20px; }

Firefox tries to load Papyrus.woff twice and the first time it fails.  It loads Papyrus.ttf at the end but I don't know if firefox will use that.  Chrome loads Papyrus.svg and then Papyrus.woff without any errors.

Your fonts aren't loading because they are not passing the cross-origin test. These errors are being thrown for each of the fonts (.eot, .woff, etc.)

@font-face failed cross-origin request. Resource access is restricted.
