Although Bembo is available to use as a webfont, we recommend replacing it with Libre Baskerville to enhance clarity and readability on the web. Whitney is also available to use as a webfont, and is recommended for use on the web. If you do not have access to this font, we suggest using Open Sans in its place. Use the following font families to style text in all web communications:
