Google Font API - not supported by Gmail

This was a fun experiment. I sent this email to my Litmus account. Here are the results. It seemed to cause Litmus some trouble but from what worked, there were some very interesting results. Outlook 2000 worked just fine but none of the others did. Lotus Notes 8 rendered it fine. Thunderbird 2 did not render the "Reenie Beanie" font. This is the first time I've ever seen Thunderbird fail. The ironic thing to me is that Gmail has no way of supporting their own funky new API until they support linked stylesheets. Let that be another prod in the ribs of the Gmail team to support Email Standards.
