Trajan (Sucks)

After posting a link to a video, yesterday, I thought, "Everyone else just embeds YouTube videos on their sites. How do you do that?"

Answer: Snarf-and-barf. There's code on every YouTube page that says "Embed."

Here, for Jeff Copeland, my favorite type-and-typesetting guru, is a video about a font. That sucks. (The font, not the video.)

I'm not sure "sucks" applies as much as "overused to death". My brother-in-law convinced me that the same thing applied to Palatino. So my correspondence is now in Hiroshige. The downside is that it's not a native font in most PostScript printers, so my files to print have to carry around the Type 1 files, but on the other hand, people say "hey, that's not Palatino."
