    Hello, here is one thought about headless CMS-es and dealing with content in CMS-es I want to share. I always preferred the CMS which has the ability to deal with custom content types and custom fields. Putting all the content in one body field never seemed a good solution if you want to stye various elements in a certain way and don’t want the content editor to deal with html tags or css classes in the wysiwyg editor. So I was for long time a fan of Drupal. It deals custom content types and fields very well, but if you want to give the user the complete freedom of putting different type of fields in custom order (as you mentioned, one paragraph… one slider… three paragraphs…one large image…etc.) then, in Drupal you have to use some custom layout modules which make the whole thing more complicate (at least for me).
    You probably heard of Craft CMS which let you put any kind of field in any position… you practically select which kind of content you want at any time… its great advantage (at least from a designer point of view) is that the generated code is all up to you… no CMS based pre-rendering or pre-styling… just pure, raw, content.
    Regards, Marko

    You briefly mentioned how web fonts are bad for accessibility. For listeners who don’t know how to extract SVG images from SVG fonts, I recommend this article by Sara Soueidan (@SaraSoueidan), “Making the Switch Away from Icon Fonts to SVG: Converting Font Icons to SVG” (https://www.sarasoueidan.com/blog/icon-fonts-to-svg/). I tried font-blast, and in unpacked 675 SVGs from Font Awesome in about 2 seconds.
