Of course :slight_smile: You just need to design a font stack that looks good when Calibri isn’t available.

Perhaps check out http://font-family.com/calibri and http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2009/09/22/complete-guide-to-css-font-stacks/

Your other option is to find another font which is licensed for use via Cufon or @font-face. Resources like http://fontsquirrel.com are excellent for this. That’ll help provide a more consistent user experience.

Just keep in mind that Calibri has smaller glyphs than fonts usually used on the web.
