A good thing to add to CSS would be the ability to use "temp fonts" which would be downloaded and cached liked images but, not actually saved on the users computer, outside of the browsers cache and or "cached fonts" folder. You could choose to save the font, or you could keep it in the cache (or purge the font cache when necessary, like a regular cache) and it would allow greater flexibility amongst web designers, but allow users to still view pages with the same ease. The only thing is the fonts couldnt be too large, and they would use up bandwitdth when transferred (unless of course the user already has the font locally). I may have read something similar to this on the W3C's site, but I cant remember so I'm posting it as my idea now, but if someone wants to prove me wrong go ahead.
Anything like this is only available when using internet explorer at this time.
I think it looks interesting dn,the font-variant: small-caps; idea would add a nice touch. I use that on several occasions on various websites with much success.
And I think you've also achieved what I would call a "good use" of comic sans ms. So many times that font is/was used quite poorly, making a site look "childish" from the get-go. I'm not feeling that here. I would however be sure to define a font list when setting up fonts in css (assuming you move to css and I know you will...) and make verdana the second choice, i.e. font-size: comic-sans, verdana, sans-serif;. That way if one does not have comic sans, they'll see verdana instead, and in the event they don't have THAT, they'll see the system default sans-serif font. Be sure to replace my comic-sans with the appropriate font name.
