Google Fonts Directory, Open Source Fonts For The Websites

,----[ Quote ]
| Google has released an exciting tool for 
| website owners: Google Fonts Directory. All 
| the fonts in this directory are available 
| for use on any website under an open source 
| license and served by Google servers. To use 
| Google Fonts on websites, the site owners 
| need to put a one line code in the head 
| section of webpage. Here is an example page, 
| created by me, which uses the Lobster font 
| available in the Google Fonts gallery.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
