It seems to be a case of Fedora being first and Microsoft being last :p

Are you sure it works well in IE8 at all? Because there are lots of other
reasons a modern web site will fail in old ie versions
Double checking... and
you're right, openerp only supports IE 9+.
Which means that I could indeed go for using ttf/otf only. Other folks
might have interest in this, don't know, but as fas as I am concerned
this resolves some loose ends.
I'm still not convinced that it makes sense to package a font like
zocial like a regular desktop font (leaving legal issues aside here).
There is also the case when a package contains both a webfont and a
desktop font (with different ttf files). Something like a
/usr/share/fonts/webfonts for fonts packaged solely as a web static
might possibly be a solution, I guess (?)
