Typekit alternative to Neutraface or Verlag

I’m sure we all agree that web font embedding is awesome and long-welcomed.

But since House Industries and HF&J are not yet on board, I’m looking for similar alternative. Oh hivemind, can you suggest some alternatives to Neutraface or Verlag?

If it doesn't need to be hosted by typekit, how about:

Strangely enough Typekit offers some other Hannes von Döhren fonts.

Brandon is a good suggestion, but test it on Windows first. HVD’s other fonts aren't hinted for XP rendering.

Agenda and Apres (for small text) have some similarities.

That's interesting Stephen - I always wondered how used Windows users are to sub-par font rendering, so whether it is something they notice or not.

They usually see fonts like Georgia, Arial, and Verdana that were optimized for Windows, so it hasn't been a big issue until now that new webfonts are available that aren't always optimized.
