where? on index page yellow corresponds to black text color, while
green corresponds to white.

I can't reproduce this on Chrome, but I can on Firefox. The problem is
that web browsers are supposed to block cross-origin font requests.
Chrome doesn't block it yet, but in Developers Console it outputs a

Blink is considering rejecting non spec-compliant cross-origin web
font requests: https://ffmpeg.org/fonts/fontawesome-webfont.woff?v=4.1.0.
Please use Access-Control-Allow-Origin to make these requests

In contrast Firefox blocks it by default, and that's what is causing
the distorted shapes.

While I did add Access-Control-Allow-Origin HTTP header to index.cgi,
as an attempt to silence the warning, it didn't work because the
header is supposed to be outputted by ffmpeg.org.

So there are two options:
- bundle Font Awesome with fateserver (both CSS and font), or
- adding "Access-Control-Allow-Origin: *" or
"Access-Control-Allow-Origin: http://fate.ffmpeg.org" to the
ffmpeg.org server HTTP header

Which one do you think is better?
