Thank you for drawing my attention to those references. If I may explain
the situation, then hopefully I can be instructed how to handle it

Upstream provides a .html file with some sample text. This .html file
refers to a .css file (from the same folder). The .css file refers to a
.woff (also in the same folder) file. If either the .woff or the .css
are removed, the rendering of the text still works in the web browser,
but with default fonts and styling. So the situation is not broken (that
is, the remove of the files does not break anything) but degraded. The
.html and .css can still be used as examples to people reading those
files with something other than a web browser.

Where should I put these files?

Thanks, Bobby
