One way to resolve OSX vs. Windows browser font rendering problems with custom fonts

AKA "The Bulletproof Method"

I recently ran into an issue where a font library included in a website using the @font-face command was rendering differently in different browsers, on different platforms.

I had uploaded a licensed TrueType font and it seemed to work on all the OSX browsers, but we were getting varied results on Windows browsers and platforms -- seemingly random combinations would make lines longer, which would break a navigation menu, and it would break the rest of the page.
