Cufon font replacement

Cufon is pretty good. Much easier to work with than sIFR. The embedding part rocks as you can do it all online. For my own site I use it for headlines. Since the cookbook section contains recipes from around the world I limit and extend the characters to:
– uppercase
– lowercase
– numerals
– punctuation
– basic latin
– and extras including Western European diacritics characters and Cyrillic aphabet: čćšđžČĆŠĐŽабвгдђежзијклљмнњопрстћуфхцчџшАБВГДЂЕЖЗИЈКЛЉМНЊОПРСТЋУФХЦЧЏШ„”‘’–—«»°ÀÁÂÃÄÅÆÇÈÉÊËÌÍÎÏÐÑÒÓÔÕÖØÙÚÛÜÝÞßàáâãäåæçèéêëìíîïðñòóôõöøùúûüýþÿŔŕ

Adding

<script type="text/javascript"> Cufon.now(); </script>

to the buttom of the page, but before other JS scripts, like Google Analytics, really makes the difference. There is no flicker in replacing the default font and Cufon font. Apparently it helps with IE quirks as well.
