New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I've been studying optimal hinting techniques for correct screen display of typefaces. I've read tens or hundreds of pages of text about hinting, and I've taken quite a few stabs at googling it (the word "link" is a pretty useless search term on the internet).
Still I can't still quite grasp the difference between a hint and a link. Could someone here explain it to me?
