    Just a comment (pet peeve) about using web fonts. Drives me crazy when people (have to admit, usually women) use the "girlie/swirly" fonts on their blogs simply because they can. Can't read 80% of them!

    Now that the web fonts offer some actual usable font choices beyond the web safe few... why doesn't NOF show a font sample as you scroll down the list (dare I say, like every other program in existence)? Without that, choosing a new font becomes a rather absurd exercise in trial and error.

    LBA,

    Great idea, I've submitted this as a feature request.

    So maybe I'm getting old, but I had no clue what was going on. I had stuff with a green check mark that I had "activated", and I wondered how to uncheck it to "de-activate" it.

    Anyhoo... on to web fonts. So presumably when I'm editing a page, highlight some text and go to the Font drop-down list in the Text Properties Panel, I am seeing available web fonts.

    So how do I know if I am selecting a web font?
    What if I don't want to use web fonts, and just want to use browser fonts to keep my site streamlined?
    How do I add more web fonts to NOF from Google?
    Can I add web fonts from Fonts.com?
    Thank you so much for starting this post which i really like to read...
