Thanks for speaking up! It was actually users like you I had in mind when I implemented the preloading. Good to know you don't actually need it.

And you are right... I'm always amazed at how well the Fluid R3 font sounds compared to it's size and also compared to fonts with much larger samples. And also how bad the SF3 version of that file sounds, all muffled and flat.

So, lets bury this hack.
