    iphone now loading custom web fonts

    Apparently Apple iPhone is a crank with @Fontface and loading custom fonts (generated by FontSquirrel).

    My custom font loads on Safari and Chrom desktop browsers but not iphone.

    I read that I should look at the font name in Fontbook but I don't know what to do with it. I'm building a simple website not a XCode app.

    Here's my font declaration:

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

    This font loads on desktop (on desktop and when loaded on my server) but does not load on my iphone.

    Here's the info from Apple Fontbook:

    Mission Gothic Regular Regular
    Mission Gothic Regular Regular, 18 pt.

    PostScript name MissionGothic-Regular
    Full name Mission Gothic Regular Regular
    Family Mission Gothic
    Style Regular

    The XCode clues online indicate that I should use the
    "PostScript name MissionGothic-Regular" name. Does this apply to simple websites? How?

    Any clues how to get iphone up to speed?

    Thank you in advance.

    They always work fine for me. Can you post a link?
