"Among other uses, Bureau Grot is recommended for Newspaper, Magazine, Book, Web and Corporate use."

Isn't it "recommended" for... basically, everything?

Am I the only one that has noticed many descriptions like this?

I suspect it's pretty crappy for pizza flyers :-)

I don't know, Nick. If I saw a pizza joint with well-design flyers set in BG, I'd assume it's a very hip place. Who knows how their pies would be, but I'd be inclined to find out.

The question is, why don't we have an "everything" use in our database instead of such an exhaustive list? Just to be sure, if a font is only good at 3 things, should we say "almost everything" or will a slighty shorter list still be too long?

BG works well for all those tasks, but I'm not so sure about the hinting yet. However, I suspect David has something up his sleve.
