Exactly! Although I already 'knew' the Museo family, I did not even think of using the slab for body
text - and in fact was only looking for a font for header text - until I saw it actually being used on the MyFonts webfonts section
where you can switch between 4 combinations of body and headings fonts. I was immediately 'sold' on using Museo Slab for the body font by seeing how well that reads even at smallish sizes. And it will go nicely with the type of style I'm looking for for a heading font, too.
For a 'real-world' test WebINK's Fontdropper tool (mentioned previously in this thread) is also quite useful, though they do not have all the same fonts that MyFonts do, and I do not want to use a subscription model.
