See, I don't, because I wouldn't consider a particular font to be part 
of the *content* of the web page, and the fact that CSS provides for a 
list of fallback fonts is a clear indicator that a particular font is 
not part of the content of the page but is only one possible way of 
*displaying* the page.

Another question: if a web page is saved without the linked font(s) 
being downloaded and stored locally, and the page is looked at while an 
Internet connection is available, a) would the linked fonts be displayed 
correctly? and b) would the same origin restriction cause problems in 
this regard?
