Here's an amusing thing: Have a look at the KWLUG logo, first in
Firefox (or some other Gecko browser), then in Chromium (or some other
Webkit browser). The font for "LinuX" is rendered as sans-serif in
Gecko, but avec-serif in Webkit.

The !Fediverse pays attention to us[1]: @vinz at gnusocial.de recommends
we convert the logo's fonts into paths to avoid display issues.

Me, I'm somewhat amused by the difference, and don't think it's a problem.
