Google Fonts

Teachers love fonts! Especially the cute fonts. Many teachers have web sites and want to use their favorite fonts that they have on a highly guarded disk that always needs to be installed as soon as possible when the district upgrades their classroom computer to a freshly wiped machine. Oftentimes, when the hopeful teacher is designing their web site, they don’t always think about the end user experience, and choose their favorite cute font for their site’s font-face. What that teacher doesn’t realize is that in order for the font to be seen as it is seen on their classroom computer, the cute fonts need to be installed on the end user’s machine. So, long story… short… the cute font defaults to Times Roman and the teacher is baffled and frustrated that their web site doesn’t look the way they hoped!
