Malabarista - now with added pony

Since @font-face support is now pretty much standard, will we be seeing a special hootoo font? It shouldn't be anything silly or hard to read, of course (and definitely mixed case, even in headers!), but it's a quick way to have some nearly subconscious identification for the site if we get away from Arial and Times.

It's just like foreign street signs always look so homemade and inoffical - different countries use different, albeit similar fonts.

And they wouldn't even have to be saved as images with @font-face, so that makes for better accessibility. Just a thought smiley - ok
