Carl returns to the Typophile display arena with his italic version this time. Lookin' pretty clean up there, Carl!

Typophile has never looked that good before.

What about a proper em-dash in the header Chris?

(and you missed the second i in italic)

Beocana is looking great.

Patty, I have a feeling that 'smarty pants' doesn't work for headings--hence the double dash. And is kerning missing also in the headings?

But... you can keystroke an em-dash, can't you?

Patty, What William said :-)
Now, if I fix it, it goes to the bottom and makes no sense so I will just stay forever as typo-man and victim of Smarty Pants :-/

I just key-stroked it, Patty and it changed to the figure 2014 which is even worse :-(

OK, so now I used a colon to avoid the ferschtunkana M-dash 2014 problem.

Right, William,

No kerning, no OT features. The cowbell is turned off too. ;( Maybe someday all those bells and whistles can be presented online. I still think it's very cool they can use a specific typeface for headers at all. Not to mention transparency etc.

It looks very nice up there, Carl. :^)

Nothing smart happens in the headlines. People who try to outsmart it will be met with code and rubbish. :^P
