		However, my prior comment was not rhetorical! The Web
developer's choice of fonts should not in any way be affected  by the
technology we are developing - he should be free to choose any font
(free, commercial, proprietary, etc.) that satisfies his needs. 


	No way. If a Web developer insists on using fonts from Foundry
X, but Foundry X won't allow Web use unless browsers implement
TCPA-style down-to-the-metal DRM which also happens to be covered by
royalty-licensed patents --- too bad for the Web developer and Foundry
X.
	 
	Are you saying that web developers can't use Monotype's hot
metal type either? :-) 
	We still have plenty of this stuff around, is anyone interested?

	 
	On a serious note - I thought we all agreed to be reasonable.
	 
	Regards,
