Yeah, I'm not sure what to do with that. Maybe it could go just above
the search?

Maybe it could be Haskell: /The Programming Language/ where /foo/ is in grey.

This font is licensed for use as a @font-face font:

be blue or something anyway, I think.

I've attached the original Inkscape SVG, if you want to make some
