  • Re: The faces of Microsoft

    This posting managed to make the word “Microsoft” bold but not to use a real link.

    Could the “admins” please do their jobs and edit this post so its link looks and acts like every other link on this page (and on the Web)?

    (Fun fact: I again had to edit the HTML of this comment so it used actual paragraph markup.)

  • Re: Graphic & Typographic designer Alan Peckolick has died

    Admins (“moderators”), please do your jobs and convert these URLs (both of which have unnecessary arguments and trackers appended) into real links. (“Real links” means links where the URL isn’t the link text. Like every other link on this page and on nearly every other page you’ve ever used for 20 years–plus.)

  • Re: Brain Sees Words As Pictures

    Admins (“moderators”), please do your jobs and convert /hideous-raw-urls-pasted-in-as-text/ into actual hyperlinks.

  • Re: Multiple languages brand

    For “branding” purposes, the answer to your question is no. Nor should there be a “reference font” (that’s a new one to us) that “supports all of these formats,” especially given that Japanese, Chinese, Hindi, Hebrew, and Greek, all of which are capitalized proper nouns, constitute languages, not “formats.”

    Multilingual typography in the same script is somewhat tricky. Across scripts it is a recipe for disaster without having on board somebody, or a team of somebodies, who are expert and accomplished.

    Purely based on what you have shown us here (an ill-written request to solve your problem for you for free), you should recuse yourself from this project before you cause an international incident.

  • Re: Forensic Fontology

    Please don’t paste in raw URLs, least of all with trackers appended.

    So-called moderators should be fixing all such postings on sight.
