millions of readers. Wikimedia projects and MediaWiki seem like dinosaurs,
even within the FOSS community, by enforcing a standard of using whatever
random sans serif a user has, and nothing more.
OK ... and the tradeoff of the designer assuming the non-free font,
and it just happening to look like garbage with any free font?
