It used be the case, possibly still is, that free downloadable fonts can be of uncertain quality in terms of line and character spacing. They may also lack extended characters; we Europeans often find the euro symbol missing, for example. I'm not condemning all downloadable fonts out of hand, just drawing attention to some problems that they may introduce.
