To all things negative about typography on the web, I must (sadly) concur. On the other hand, you might want to check out Microsoft's typography page:
http://www.microsoft.com/truetype/content.htm
Although I for one don't want MS single-handedly shaping the future of the Internet, their ideas in this area hold some promise--Cascading Style Sheets, Typography standards, etc. Netscape also has a few good ideas.

I have on occasion seen a few other sites that discussed some of these issues with some depth, offering valuable suggestions for today's Web. David Siegel's springs to mind (http://www.dsiegel.com/home.html). A stroll through AltaVista or Infoseek might also yield you some lively discussion on "typography" and "design."
