Isso é muito bom.

A pessoa pensa: epá, além de tudo ainda vamos levar com o Comic Sans nas páginas web, mesmo que não o tenhamos no PC?

Mas a verdade é que isso já era feito com hacks em Flash como o sIFR, que eram péssimos porque dependiam do Flash, o texto não podia ser procurado com CTRL+F, o tamanho e número de ligações para o download da página eram muito maiores, etc.

Desta forma, o texto pode ser personalizado pelo autor da página, mas quem tiver um browser que não o suporte ou que o tenha desactivado, tem o texto acessível na mesma (pensem leitores para voz, telemóveis, etc).

❝The idea that I can be presented with a problem, set out to logically solve it with the tools at hand, and wind up with a program that could not be legally used because someone else followed the same logical steps some years ago and filed for a patent on it is horrifying.❞- John Carmack on software patents
