Description

8 years ago
http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/brand/identity/typefaces/ calls Museo and Calluna Open Fonts. However, while Museo and Calluna are great font designs and available free of charge (free as in beer), they are neither Free as in Free Software nor Open as in Open Source.

Please don't call fonts that don't allow the distribution of derivatives as "Open". Using "Open" for things that aren't Open in the Open Source sense dilutes the meaning of Open.

Thanks Henri. Matej, per our email conversation, can you work on this with Sean?

I'd say we just pull them from the section and space out the two that are there. we can add more as time goes on and as we encounter more we like.

That works for me, or we could make the language a bit more ambiguous:

Other Recommended Fonts

When it comes to typography at Mozilla, we love supporting free and open fonts. We’ve selected a few we go to regularly to share with you here.

Calluna and Museo Sans are only free in one weight, so might be best to just axe them.

If we simply remove those fonts is there anything else we need to do to clarify? (other copy or design changes, that is)

Just want to make sure we have our plan together before passing this back to silverorange.

The current copy seems appropriate for the other two fonts (League Gothic and Chunk Five) as is.
