Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 211051
Change luxi fonts with generic ones in release notes and splash page
Last modified: 2007-04-18 13:51:10 EDT
## Description of problem:
In the release notes' CSS and browser splash page we use luxi-sans for headings
and other stuff, which is not displayed OK for some languages, such as greek
(see attached screenshot)
We should replace these with generic classes, like sans, serif, or even Dejavu ones.

Let's try a snapshot of a sane size this time...
Standing recommendations are to list font family first and generic classes as
fallbacks. I certainly don't see anything wrong with something like:
font: "Dejavu Sans", sans-serif;
Though we could specify other alternatives, too.
This also affects the fedora.redhat.com website and other derivatives.
we should at least have the following:
as specified by the W3C, the font-family should contain a generic family of
fonts, either on its own or after any specific fonts.
the above should use Dejavu in FC and Arial in Windows (arial is default for
sans-serif family of fonts).
This issue is already fixed in Rawhide and because of the slip it will be
included in FC6 as well.
We have a similar fix scheduled for all fedora.redhat.com websites' CSS files
too (see bug #211059).
