deja vu serif exampleA slab serif font by Tavmjong Bah, based on the Vera fonts. Unlike tra­di­tional slab serif fonts, DejaVu has con­trast between thick and thin strokes. The bowls are slightly square, and the large x-height means it remains read­able at smaller sizes.

DejaVu tests well across browsers, though there are some let­terspac­ing issues in Safari on Win­dows XP.
