phalamir: vygramul: I'm not the world's greatest Comic Sans fan, but really, grow up.I like it when people writ ein Comic Sans. Let's me know who the retards are - like truck nutz and Confederate flags
It doesn't even matter what you think. You know why, jagoff? Cause I'm famous. I am on every major operating system since Microsoft farking Bob. I'm in your signs. I'm in your browsers. I'm in your instant messengers. I'm not just a font. I am a force of motherfarking nature and I will not rest until every uptight armchair typographer cock-hat like you is surrounded by my lovable, comic-book inspired, sans-serif badassery.Enough of this bullshiat. I'm gonna go get hammered with Papyrus.
ZAZ: In my day we had Computer Modern and if you knew you would print your thesis on one of those fancy PostScript printers with preloaded fonts you could get fancy and use Times. And WE LIKED IT.
poot_rootbeer: When applying for jobs, I've gotten in the habit of going to the company's site, seeing what fonts their designers chose, and then using the same fonts (or the nearest free alternates) to format my résumé. Sometimes I use thir accent colors, too.I figure that if only subconsciously, seeing a typeface that's familiar from day to day businesses will make some people feel that I'm a better match.
InternetSecurityGuard: It's Arial or nothing.
ArcadianRefugee: InternetSecurityGuard: It's Arial or nothing.Worst. Font. Ever.At least Comic Sans is legible.
Andric: ArcadianRefugee: InternetSecurityGuard: It's Arial or nothing.Worst. Font. Ever.At least Comic Sans is legible.Come on. Arial is boring and unattractive, but it's hardly illegible.
doyner: I don't know if I trust an article written in jaf-factiweb.
ArcadianRefugee: Andric: ArcadianRefugee: InternetSecurityGuard: It's Arial or nothing.Worst. Font. Ever.At least Comic Sans is legible.Come on. Arial is boring and unattractive, but it's hardly illegible.OK, not completely illegible. I do, however, have argument with any font in which two completely distinct characters are completely identical.Lower-l and upper-I, in Arial's case.lIlIlIlIlIIIIlllIlKim Jong Il should not look like Kim Jong ll (although I will admit that would be less of an issue if people wrote his name correctly and hyphenated Jong-Il). Illinois should not look like lllinois (The Beastie Boys' "License to Ill" always cracked me up as "License to lll").The word "Ill" written in three different (offending) fonts:Helvetica: IllGill Sans: IllArial: Ill
Doc Daneeka: Similarly, I hate fonts that make it impossible to distinguish the capital letter I and the numeral 1.
Smeggy Smurf: I use Georgia to make sure nobody mistakes my work for anothers
Cormee: Using comic sans in any sort of professional context is like going to a funeral in a Barney costume
