I see this site:
http://www.shauninman.com/

Where for the titles of his content, he embedded flash, instead of embedding a font. What are the issues that anyone knows of this technique? Since embedding fonts is sketchy, I found this interesting...

I guess one issue would be if they don't have flash enabled or don't have the plugin at all.

Yeah, I guess I could to an image hack so text could show up as an alternative, but I don't like this idea -- it has some cool features, but downloading more flash and dealing with the accessibility could be a royal pain.
