Google Docs gets six new fonts, including Calibri, courtesy of Google Font API

It's about time! You can now choose from almost twice as many fonts when editing a Google Docs document. Calibri, Cambria, Droid Serif, Droid Sans, Corsiva and Consolas are now available. Such magic is brought to us via the Google Font API.

Curiously, only the Droid fonts show up in the Google Font Directory, but whether that's for licensing reasons or not I don't know. Perhaps it just hasn't been updated yet.

Anyway, choice is great and all -- they're working on adding more fonts and support for other character sets! -- but the most important thing is that imported Microsoft Word docs written in Calibri will now import properly into Google Docs. Hooray!
