How about cloud computing? Gimp or CorelDraw like applications. There
should be allowed to make use of the large amount of fonts site on his
hard disk. Especially desktop publishing applications.
Legal embeding of font is not a specific problem to cloud computing.
Desktop applications had that problem since day one. So it is not like
suddenly this is a problem. Just solve it like it's always been, through
I think that HTML5 aims more than just web browsering anymore. There
are much broader vision ahead.
