...although even still, I think the alternating s/longs/s looks a bit weird, and that to me it would look more "correct" to simply be a triple-longs...
Don't forget the whole "make it like the picture" thing. It doesn't matter what I like.

I myself, my personal taste, is that I don't overly like to use "forgotten" letter forms at all. Heck, I don't read French or other languages than English any more (I use to be able to suss out German). So typesetting other languages presents enough of a challenge for me, let alone mixing in "funny looking" letter forms.

But to paraphrase the bumper sticker expression, any day typesetting is better than working.

Indeed. And in that regard, I've been wondering if our friend PJMiller's moniker here is actually his name, "PJ," or if that's a reflection of what his day-to-day work clothes are -- pajamas. :lol:

Yes, ya gotta love this job, any sort of stay-at-home computer job. Crawl out of bed, put the coffee on, and you're at work. Feel like a nap? Crawl back into bed. :mrgreen:

My name is Paul James Miller.

My work is as an Electronics Engineer in Medical Research, I do not wear pyjamas to work. My hobby is designing fonts (amongst other things).

My first font was named 'Kelvinch' after the name of my main character on the MMORPG 'Guild Wars 2', that character is called 'Kelvinch Twock'. :D

I had to google what "MMORPG" meant -- showing my age, I guess.

And that's why I wear pajamas all day. ;)

We need a "like" button on here, if not a bunch of 'em, for those times when you don't really have anything else to add, but just feel like saying "right on," or "wow," or "ha ha," or just whatever other sort of simple acknowledgement. ;)
