Icon not showing on Chrome

I keep getting the fallback rectangle displayed for the icon font. Checked the html & CSS...everything is identical to Guil's code. Anyone else run into the same issue??

Can you post the code from both files?

Hey Dustin, thanks for your reply. I've got the icon font in my local directory.

Here is the css:

@font-face {
  font-family: 'icomoon';
  src:url('fonts/icomoon.eot');
  src:url('fonts/icomoon.eot?#iefix') format('embedded-opentype'),
    url('fonts/icomoon.woff') format('woff'),
    url('fonts/icomoon.ttf') format('truetype'),
    url('fonts/icomoon.svg#icomoon') format('svg');
  font-weight: normal;
  font-style: normal;
}

and the rule:

.wrap:before {
    content: "\e000";
    font-family: "icomoon";
    font-size: 1.9em;
}

I'm not sure if you use Dropbox but sometimes that's a little easier to zip a project and upload to.
