    Default Font Dating

    If you, like me, are woefully undereducated about the different typefaces out there check out this excellent site: http://www.typeconnection.com/

    Reminds me I still have to put more time into typography ... but typographers tend to mostly be such an uptight, self-important bunch!

    Sorry, I didn't mean you I had a few specific typographer friends in mind!

    (of course, what does it help, if they can put a font together, if they thewhen n make a poster combining magenta lettering, white outlines, and an eggshell blue background?)

    Naaaaaaah, you're the left-out part of "mostly". It's an exacting craft - I can see how one might get all OCD over it.

    Btw, thanks a LOT, Torstan - that site could eat a big chunk of otherwise productive time ;-) :-b...
