OK, scratch that idea. I'd assumed it could antialias lines and curves in
the same way.

Yes, you'd put the logo in as HTML, and style it with CSS. Newer browsers
let you reference fonts, so that you can use a font which isn't installed on
the user's computer. See Google's instructions for Droid Sans Mono, for
example:

If you've got spare time, it would be interesting to see them with the [y]
adjusted so that there's less space above the y (whether you move the y or
shrink the [ ] is up to you). But don't worry too much about it. Primarily
I'd like to get some more opinions - Brian, Min, Evan, you've all weighed in
on logos previously - what do you think of the different fonts Klonuo has
tried?

Thanks,
Thomas
