Linux Libertine Rules!

Of the fonts mentioned, one stands head and shoulders above the rest, in completeness and beauty. I have set my desktop to use Linux Libertine everywhere, and my browser to use it in place of any fonts specified on web pages. I can't understand why it's not installed and used by default on all distributions. (Gentium may have valid uses, but it looks awful in my browser.) I can't understand, in particular, why anyone would use the Liberation or Deja Vu serif fonts any more, for anything.
A detail... I have altered my copy to use the looped s_t and c_t ligatures by default. I wish there were a way to get the font handling code in Gnome to do that without altering the font files. Is there?
