WebKit Font Face problem with IE9?

I just ran into this with a new site we are launching. We were using a webkit font that was generated by fontsquirrel.com (great resource by the way) and I noticed the font was displaying great in pretty much everything except IE9. After a bit of searching it turns out that for some web kit fonts you will need to add a new mime-type to the site in IIS.

 

Here are the steps:

  1. Open the site in IIS.
  2. In the Features View, with the site node selected, click MIME Types.
  3. Click Add from the Actions area.
  4. Add ".woff" for the Extension and "application/x-font-woff
    " for the mimeType and click ok.

These steps cleared the issue up for us. : )
