Why use a CSS webfont

The advantage is that because it is CSS you have more styling options.

Currently it's very hard to change the default colors of the Elgg icons. With a webfont this can be done in just a few lines of CSS.

Also you can make the icons larger/smaller to fit you needs

The added advantage of Font Awesome is they have over 450 different icons.
