The end-user doesn't have the right font,
even if we make it available for download,
then they may not be able to install it on their machine cos
its a work/university/whatever PC, or they're browsing on

Yes, any good webpage designer always specifies an alternative 'out' for those who don't own the font. Right now, the Lone Wolf HTML use Souvenir if present, but defaults to something else if not. That's what we're looking to do with FW, if at all possible.
