I sometimes encounter content (such as an email I just received) which specifies a font for the text (say, via a <style> tag) that I do not have installed (for example, MS's Cambria), and therefore it is displayed with some alternative font, which in my case is some horrible eyesore. I know I can always install the font in question, but sometimes you need a license, and sometimes that license costs money (sometimes a lot of money). So, I was wondering if there isn't some server, or plugin to the font server that can serve a "similar" font, or just an adequate font alternative from the ones already present on the system. Does such a thing exist?
