Fixed Base64 Data-URI & Minify CSS

Not that this is a solution to the bug, but you really do not want to embed an entire icon font using base 64 because it does not allow the browser to cache what is a completely static asset. In this case the extra HTTP request is worth it.

I would say that embedding a huge file in the CSS is unlikely to be particularly beneficial, especially with the extra size overhead of base 64 encoding.

That said, I have worked around this for this particular case.
