Using new fonts for desktop reader mode

Hello desktop Firefox devs,

I've been working on implementing reader mode for desktop Firefox, which so
far has mainly involved moving the Android reader mode code to toolkit, and
refactoring it so that it can be shared with desktop. However, I'm
currently starting to work on implementing the reader mode CSS styles for
desktop [1], and our UX team has requested that we use some fonts that we
don't currently ship with desktop Firefox [2].

I understand that issues with adding new fonts include character support
for various languages, as well as space considerations (I know for sure
this is an issue on mobile, not sure how much it affects desktop). Would we
be willing to include these new fonts for at least a subset of locales
where we know there is proper character support?

I'm not sure of the best way forward with this issue, and I would
appreciate any help (either here or in the bug).
