Typography (the art of using type) is a real
craftsmanship, and it takes years to master. One of the
first challenge to anyone who really wants to venture in
the world of fonts, is to the font words. Please see our Glossary

your Martian font, you placed a dot above the glipnol
character, and forgot to put an accent above the
weirdoo. It is unforgettable. I am furious and you are
just as stupid as a bunch of lunar dogs ! You should be

little extra, because I suffered incredible damage to my
much sophisticated sense of intellectual properness and
inherent graceful sensitivity.

less taught. If for any reason we committed a mistake in
transcribing your native language, be assured it is not
intentional. Please courteously provide us with the proper
information, and we will make sure appropriate updates are
made. All we know of, as humble and insignificant

a real delight for the connoisseur : it comes in more
French wine or Indian spice. A true intellectual will
wander the narrow
corridors of a Library with a daring console, ready to
face any danger,
including snotty remarks in confidential forums and
collapse. Gentleman coders will not be afraid to compulse
volumes of parchemin,
chasing the ever more elusive perfect fix to bugs as
snorkeling snarks in the shadows of processes only known

how to install fonts under 10 versions of dozens of
incarnations of Linux. If you enjoy Linux for its
complexity, and we do
believe it maybe more enlightening than becoming obese in

see what to do
with the files.
If you are forced by your IT manager to use Linux, then

of his choices, right ? Oh, no... I did not know... So,
who is handling

Oh yeah, right, lets keep it to adjascent cubicles...
