Prevent FOUT and control font loading with CSS font-display

https://tabatkins.github.io/specs/css-font-display/#descdef-font-face-font-display

font-display gives easy, and precise control over Flash Of Unstyled Text.

It's makes it possible to tell the browser how long it should wait for a font before rendering a fallback.

Some sites use JavaScript/localStorage hacks to use fallback font on the first uncached load, and then use custom fonts on later visits. This is also possible with font-display without JS/hacks.
