Subject: One research problem we could research

Hi all,

I have one thing we might opt to research (after we have the project 
procedures done). We might want to look into making good-looking fonts 
available standardly.

In a standard install esp. the helvetica and other adobe fonts are really 
ugly. This should not be needed. Also we could try to make sure that the 
fonts have exactly the same size as on windows in the browsers as there are 
still webdesigners that work with font size assumptions for their layout.

Also I read a report complaining about openoffice fonts being ugly esp. on 
gentoo (the only distro named). We should not just let that be, but try to 
improve, and also write up a good manual on how and why fonts are beautiful/
ugly.

Paul
