Thank you[edit]

Thank you Alex for your correction! You see I'm not a native English speaker. Thanks again!

Wikipedia version[edit]

Which version does the Wikipedia wordmark use? Where can I get the variant with the special "W"? Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 11:39, 23 March 2012 (UTC)

There's something about it at http://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/Wikimedia_official_marks/Word_mark_creation/howto_W. Current standard versions of the fonts seem to have the glyph in the private use area, at U+E02F. Fut.Perf. 12:47, 23 March 2012 (UTC)

Part of LibreOffice, but *not* in Ubuntu[edit]

Linux Libertine and Linux Biolinum are bundled with LibreOffice as of the suite's 3.3 release, with some features added in the 3.5 release. LibreOffice is the default office suite in many Linux distributions, such as Fedora, Linux Mint, openSUSE, and Ubuntu.

Both sentences are true, but the inference "So those Linux distributions include Linux Libertine and Linux Biolinum" is false. Ubuntu's LibreOffice package does not include these fonts, it doesn't even recommend them, and neither font is on my fairly stock Ubuntu 13.10 installation. I think the second sentence should be deleted, unless someone can show that a majority of Fedora, Linux Mint, and openSUSE actually package these fine font families in their default distribution. -- S Page (WMF) (talk) 23:33, 20 December 2013 (UTC)
