xfonts-scalable provides fonts that can be drawn at any size by the X server
or font server without loss of quality.  In most cases it is desirable to
have the X font server (xfs) and/or an X server installed to make the fonts
available to X clients.
This package is missing three fonts from the X.Org source archives
because the license terms on the fonts do not meet the Debian Free
Software Guidelines; they are the Type1 fonts Adobe Utopia, IBM Courier,
and Bigelow & Holmes (B&H) Luxi.
This package requires the xutils package to prepare the font directories
for use by an X server or X font server.
