Webfont alternative to Berthold Akzidenz-Grotesk Bold Extended

Hi all

I need to find a webfont alternative to Berthold Akzidenz-Grotesk Bold Extended (http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/berthold/akzidenz-grotesk-be/bold-extended/) preferably with a light weight in the same family.

So far, I;ve found "foundation sans" http://www.fontspring.com/fonts/fontsite/foundation-sans and Nimbus Sans http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/urw/nimbus-sans/black-extra/preview.html - These are close enough for this project.

However, they both render badly in Firefox on seemingly all versions of windows. Does anyone have any tips or can suggest alternatives?

Much appreciated

You could try Neue Helvetica 73 Bold Extended through Monotype's web fonts service. However, the samples generated on their web site for Firefox (5/7) on different versions of Windows are not promising.

Thanks Karl, I'll compare those. I'm actually thinking that this does render better than the others I've found. It might not be extended enough though. It needs to be very close to help convince the client to not use CUFON or something equally ancient.
