I want to do an animated logo with CSS. For this I need a commercially free to use font, where (for the purpose of the animation I'm imagining) the letters M an W are basically the same, just flipped upside down. An example font that would fit the M-W criteria would be Lithos Pro, but this is not a free to use font.

I'd be thankful for recommendations.

There are several 100% free for commercial use options available on dafont:

Viafont

    Viafont has the added bonus that A and V are also identical-but-flipped, so you can be a disgruntled Texan teenager (“Aw, ma!”) from both directions. – Janus Bahs Jacquet Oct 30 '15 at 14:22

    Just be sure to observe the license for each font, even on dafont. Not all of them are free for commercial use like the ones I listed. Even if you do use one of the free fonts for a job, it's always a good idea to toss come coin to whoever designed the typeface you profited by using. It's just good manners! Peace. – 13ruce Oct 30 '15 at 19:46
