    Looks different to what?

    If the first choice, ProximaNova (perhaps not even you has this, try
    "Proxima Nova") is not on your machine, then it will default to the
    second, if the second is not on your machine, it will default to your
    last choice, the order (and spelling) is important. If you are not
    even seeing Arial (who has not Arial?) what are you seeing, a frog, a
    cake, a kangaroo, the late Bin Laden, (that's different!)?

    You mean the one that is "[n]ot exactly a feature which is new to
    CSS3, @font-face was first proposed for CSS2 and has been implemented
    in Internet Explorer since version 5!"?

    Sure, but you gave no clue what you meant by "different", nor that you
    were using or wanting to use this "new technology", and you still
    don't say if you have on your own computer a font called "Proxima
    Nova" or even "ProximaNova".

    Anyway, you seem to have sorted out your problem, good for you.
