Why isn't font-squirrel @font-face generator working in IE8?

Why isn't font-squirrel @font-face generator working in IE8?


I've directly downloaded a package from font-squirrel. I've done zero manipulation to this @font-face package. Additionally, the package has worked on every modern browser.

I've uploaded the code to my server:

Does anyone know why IE8 or lower isnt rendering this @font-face?

I know EOT is in the package. I've read so many articles. Most of them were understanding how @font-face works. I feel as if I understand more about @font-face then I need too; nevertheless, none of the reads are solving the problem. The closest answer is that's possible is that, IEtester isnt rendering correctly. source

I really don't think it is IE-tester that is messing this up (for I've tested various other sites that I know have @font-face example). Nevertheless, if anyone can vm test or has xp to test this that would be great.

It seems that Font-squirrel is going through some maintenance right now. I would have to assume that this is the reason why their generator isnt properly converting files. I solved this problem by useing another converter for fonts. found here! I'm not sure as to why but the fonts also became 20kbs smaller using this generator vs font-squirrel. If anyone has any ideas why this generator reduces file sizes that would be great i'll upvote ya. I hope this stops some headaches.
