Using the @font-face method sounds good, but like someone else’s comment, aliasing on certain browsers and at smaller sizes is poor (depending on the font files).

I find that using HTML entities works better for websites that need a hand full of icons.

However if you’re creating a web app and need lot’s of custom icons then this is probably the best method.
