I've been using Liberation for the browsers, after I had heard that. I used
to have problems with DejaVu extending past the boundaries of boxes, getting
chopped off or overwritten by other text.

Definitely DejaVu. Coverage is one of their main goals, if not THE main
goal. Liberation is newer (so had less time to achieve high coverage) and
focuses primarily on metric compatibility.
Thanks. I switched my system font back to DejaVu. It's nice to have a
reliable font that can display just about anything, without having to install
gazillions of non-Roman font packages that you'll never use.
