- Standard installation of an operating system includes suitable fonts for the language selected by the user. Fonts not included in a standard installation can usually be added via menu options; they can also be downloaded. Some languages currently require a font download for Windows 98 and below; these languages include Pashto, Hindi, Urdu, Bengali. 
+ Fonts not available in a standard installation can often be downloaded from free sites by users, and you can point to those sites from your pages. It is not desirable to embed fonts in pages because the technology for that is proprietary and browser-specific.
  
  Commonly available Unicode fonts (commercial and open source) are [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Truetype TrueType] and the more recent [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opentype OpenType].
