 Replying to [comment:15 arthuredelstein]:
 > Hi Nina -- Montserrat, Source Sans, and the Noto fonts should still be
 usable as WebFonts. The only restriction is that Tor Browser is not
 whitelisting them as system fonts.

 When you say "WebFonts", do you mean font-face/font-family in CSS?

 If so, I can't get this to work.  I have a page, which uses them, and it's
 fine in Firefox (Linear B correctly displayed, using the Noto font), but
 it does not work in Tor Browser (I get "tofu").
