    For example, I am on a member participation website and I cannot use my
    desired fonts on my computer as they are "non-transferable' / they cannot be
    transferred easily and spontaneously. Suppose if a website has my desired
    fonts to use via @font-face, I cannot use them 'real time' as it is one
    direction e.g. I want to be able to use the font as I type. Thus there are
    these barriers and monopoly. Something should have been done about this
    years ago. Webmail should have it also. I should be able to upload my
    desired fonts and type on the member participation websites. This feature is
    important to have on text editors / text fields and should be implemented
    immediately. Once this feature is used then if particular websites have a
    policy about what fonts users can upload, they could state it.
