Sirba plus Myriad Pro or Sirba plus Soliel?

Please share your thoughts on the pairing of the following as a serif (text type) and sans serif (display and caption type) combination for a small book of photo-graphic/typographic images:
1 Sirba and Soliel
2 Sirba and Myriad Pro

My initial interest is in the complementary relationship of Sirba and Myriad Pro in terms of ascender height, x-height, character width, friendliness and readability. However, Soliel "feels" like a hybrid of Myriad Pro and Avenir that may be a bit more complementary.

I appreciate any feedback based on your experiences with these typefaces.

Thank you,
Judy

PS: Attached sample is Myriad Pro and Avenir for Display and Constantia for Text to come as close as possible to the intended type pairing ... until I purchase Sirba and/or Soliel.

Determining "Redistributability"

Forums: 

Good day!

I am a designer/technical writer at a software company and am having a difficult time determining whether or not we can develop a documents package that includes Myriad Pro. The end user would receive this typeface a part of our software installation process; I just can't seem to figure out how to find accurate information on this subject. Someone at typophile should be able to tell me!:

What do I need to do to determine--WITH ABSOLUTE CONFIDENCE--the legality of distributing this font?

Put another way: we are considering incorporating Myriad Pro into an installation that would affect 40,000 (yes, 40k) computers.

Thanks in advance for your advice!

Seeking Advice: Web Font like Myriad Pro

Forums: 

Hi,

My company is updating our website and like the rest of the world has been doing, I want to update our site to include the fonts that we use in our identity. Unfortunately, we use Myriad Pro in a wide range of styles and Myriad Web only has 5 fonts (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Myriad_%28typeface%29#Myriad_Web) that don't really cover our needs. So, I'm looking for a suggestion for a typeface that we can use that is similar to Myriad Pro but available as a web font. I'd really like something with light, black and condensed versions. Any suggestions?

The image is just a clip of some of the different styles we intend to use.

Thanks for any help!
