Its working for me in Firefox (10.0beta).

The font is correctly declared in the stylesheet with the right format. (Its served as text/plain rather than application/font-woff but that does not seem to cause a problem).

I ran one of the woffs (the bold) against the WOFF validator and it passed all the tests (report attached).

There is no metadata though, just a comment on the license in the stylesheet. I can make you a metadata file, if you want,which is included in the woff itself so that the font data and the license always travel together.
