+
+The kits from [Typekit](http://typekit.com) that I'm using in these examples
+are referrer-protected. They'll load successfully as long as the domain in the
+url bar is ```seanmcb.com``` or ```localhost```. If you have ```file://``` or
+a different domain, the fonts won't load.

+If you don't know how to make a simple local server to try these out, check out

+for a quick and easy way to serve some static files on ```http://localhost```.
