comment Fonts/Webfonts + My website
Brendan you make a very good point about avoiding legal grey areas. A good rule of thumb is that if you're not sure if you are licensed for a particular use (due to the license being vague or not being able to locate a legit license from the author), assume that you aren't.

comment Looking for methods of showing text or logos on same coloured backgrounds
To me the obvious answer is the bottom one - make the red text white to swap its colour with the background. You still end up with red, black and white. It's not all that unusual for companies to have different versions of the logo for different background colours, etc.

comment Is there a good sans serif condensed safe font for web?
Why limit yourself to web safe fonts anymore? It's 2013 and web fonts are now well-supported, and these of course don't require the user to have them pre-installed.

comment Is there a good sans serif condensed safe font for web?
People have different meanings when they say "web safe", but if they mean fonts that are part of Microsoft's Core Fonts for the Web and/or pre-installed on most users' computers, this is not web-safe.

Here's a normal size and enhanced version for use with whatthefont. Using this I was able to determine that it was Lucida Sans.

comment Free alternatives to Impact
Oswald appears to be another revival of the same typeface as League Gothic, but in a less finished state (some of the stroke widths are uneven and non-symmetical, see "g", "s", "$", and "&"). In fact that uneven "s" is quite bad - once you've seen it, you can't un-see it.
