If you go to the main website, the @font-face is working fine on all browsers but when I go into the blog which is WordPress then my @font-face does not work in IE but works in Chrome and Firefox. Does anyone know why it does not work?

http://romabio.com/ <--- Main Site

http://romabio.com/newsstand/ <--- Blog WordPress

	<div class="post">
			
				<div class="datebg">
					<div class="month"><?php the_time('M'); ?></div><div class="day"><?php the_time('d'); ?></div>
					<img src="http://www.romabio.com/newsstand/wp-content/themes/RomaUSA/images/blog-date.png" alt="" title="" />
				</div>
			  
				<div class="preview-image">
				 <em><?php the_post_thumbnail( array(620,295) ); ?></em>
					<p>If you see this message then the image didn't load or was not found. <br />
					Content the webmaster to fix the problem. <a href="mailto:info@romabio.com">info@romabio.com</a></p>

				<h4><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h4>
			  
	<div class="entry">
	 <?php the_content('Continue Reading &uarr;'); ?>
	</div>
   </div>







@font-face {
    font-family: 'Bold';
    src: url('fonts/bold-webfont.eot');
    src: url('fonts/bold-webfont.eot?#iefix') format('embedded-opentype'),
         url('fonts/bold-webfont.woff') format('woff'),
         url('fonts/bold-webfont.ttf') format('truetype'),
         url('fonts/bold-webfont.svg#Bold') format('svg');
    font-weight: normal;
    font-style: normal;
}

@font-face {
    font-family: 'Book';
    src: url('fonts/book-webfont.eot');
    src: url('fonts/book-webfont.eot?#iefix') format('embedded-opentype'),

I use the font squirrel gen code. I try to use a direct link to the font but then Firefox does not work. This is driving me crazy. It works if I use the CV in IE but I don't want it to do that. NON WordPress works fine. I'm testing it on IE10.

This is annoying me, as well. What do you mean by CV?

I'm thinking there's something wrong with the font file itself.

Ah, for what it's worth, it doesn't work in IE8. Also the left column drops too low.

See here for some suggestions to try: http://stackoverflow...459447#12459447

I'm thinking it might be a naming issue.

Try this, make your font location absolute rather than relative.

@font-face {
font-family: 'Bold';
src: url('/fonts/bold-webfont.eot');
src: local('☺'), url('/fonts/bold-webfont.woff') format('woff'),
url('/fonts/bold-webfont.ttf') format('truetype'),
url('/fonts/bold-webfont.svg') format('svg');
font-weight: normal;
font-style: normal;
}
@font-face {
font-family: 'Book';
src: url('/fonts/book-webfont.eot');
src: local('☺'), url('/fonts/book-webfont.woff') format('woff'),
url('/fonts/book-webfont.ttf') format('truetype'),
url('/fonts/book-webfont.svg') format('svg');
font-weight: normal;
font-style: normal;
}
