Note​: some fonts are free for personal use, but not for com­mer­cial use; if you use a free font for a website, make sure it’s free for commercial use … and make sure by checking the copyright information in the font files, many sources of ‘free’ fonts down­load font files which are not truly free for commercial use, or which may not be embedded.

Note​: a font is deemed a ‘basic’ if it has regular (400) & bold (700) weights, b ‘good’ if regular (400), semi­bold (600), & bold (700), c ‘great’ if regular (400), semi­bold (600), bold (700), & extra­bold (800) or black (900), and d ‘rich’ if 9 or more weights.
