I still would prefer that for template style are as asking someone to hunt down and install a font just for a piece of clipart seems too much. My sense is that when a font is converted to paths it is finished art and ok under the copyright guidelines, but I'll defer to the expertise of a real copyright expert.

<BR>As we all know - some fonts are copyrighted and need to be paying when applies in commercial use cases. <BR>And OCAL rules from the other side allow any use of clipart. <BR>
So I think my question is obvious - converted to paths or not - will some exotic and/or easily recognizable font lead to potential copyright problems?<BR>
<BR>#2 thought - I think will be great if author will give a name of font he/she used when it need to be not converted to outline. In case of open-source font (forgive me, but font licensing too far for me) there will be great if link will be placed in comment also. Maybe little phrase about it should be placed in guidelines?<BR>
