Du coup, vu que ce site n'a pas spécialement d'enjeu graphique particulier, j'ai décidé de me passer des deux fontes que j'imposais depuis la refonte récente. L'occasion de me replonger dans l'enfer des font stacks web safe…
Vous l'avez peut-être remarqué vous même si vous faites partie des rares à venir de temps en temps sur le site, mais certainement pas si vous me lisez via le flux RSS, j'ai fait quelques ajustements, notamment sur la page d'accueil.
