Typekit, please hurry

On a scale from 1 to 10 on how excited I am to see what becomes of the soon-to-be released Typekit, I fall somewhere between 2,745 and infinity.

Typekit, in their own words (emphasis mine):

As a Typekit user, you’ll have access to our library of high-quality fonts. Just add a line of JavaScript to your markup, tell us what fonts you want to use, and then craft your pages the way you always have. Except now you’ll be able to use real fonts. This really is going to change web design.

While it won’t turn the web canvas into a sketch pad, it should offer up the ability for me to prettify the web on your computer even more. As it stands now, there are a very limited amount of ways for me to get your favorite font on the web (ie. Papyrus) without breaking copyright laws or hindering future development on your site.

It might be early, but I think I’m in love.
