Is it legal to use proprietary fonts in Linux? 
It's better to avoid the legal issues by using free 
fonts that have the same sizes as the popular proprietary fonts, 
so that they fit on a page the same way. 
For example, consider the "Liberation" fonts. 


Thank you Red Hat!

Some bad web sites are designed to render correctly only with a 
particular web browser. Sometimes, changing the browser ID 
suffices, but there are web sites that are just bad and render 
well only with some particular browser, especially some popular 
proprietary one.
