I now see this message, that fonts need to be installed, on
http://www.google.com/policies/
and
http://www.google.com/policies/terms/
and
http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/preview/
I do not see it on
http://www.google.co.uk/
(which is where I am redirected to when I type in
http://www.google.com/
nor have I seen it on any other website since my last post on this subject.
