At least with debian.org, it appears the CSS specifies a font of "Arial, 
Helvetica, sans-serif", which means if msttcorefonts isn't installed, it 
falls back to the ugly bitmap Helvetica fonts.  Which seems more like a bug 
in the CSS for a website for free software, than in the web browsers obeying 
this directive.
