Which site?

Need more info. We need specific information on which font need to be added. lists many fonts, but we are not sure what the community prefers. Of course , it needs to be a free licensed font.

Christopher Harvey's Aboriginal Sans or Serif fonts are GPLed, but may not be optimal for webfont since it is not for Cherokee alone(contains many other scripts).

Please provide direct links to the fonts and their licenses that you are proposing to be added to WebFonts.

Need more information(Font, upstream , license information) to act on this bug.

Yes. isn't GPL if we look into font file. It seems having proprietary license attached with it.

It's possible to extract the Cherokee block from FreeSans, similarly to what was done with Divehi.

Windows 2000 and Windows XP are no longer supported. All modern Operating System should have support for this font. Also, we're deprecating webfonts feature from UniversalLanguageSelector.
