Font-display is incompatible with icon fonts  ↦

A strong argument against the use of icon fonts

The main point that I think hasn’t really been communicated enough is that icon fonts exist in a place that would seem to be outside of the web standards mainstream. Specifically, the font loading poster child—the font-display descriptor—has no valid value that is compatible with icon fonts.

Personally I’m a huge fan of inline SVG. What do you use?
