What do we think if Typedia?

Just found this site that claims to be the Wikipedia of typography. You can look up fonts, learn about typography, get involved in forums, Add your own fonts and knowledge. Looks like it’s pretty early days and there are plenty of holes in the content but you can get an idea of what it is going to be about.

All seems to be stuff that Typophile does in some way other. To me it seems a little ill-conceived what does everyone else think? The search tools are not as good as something like, the forum will need to work hard to beat Typophile and the type info doesn’t seem that great to me.

What does everyone else think?

Showing web addresses in body copy



Here's a good one. What opinions to people have on suitable ways to display web addresses in body copy?

The first element to this is to do with punctuation and grammar, in that as a web address sits within a sentence, normal punctuation will apply (period at the end of the sentence). Also, it would be desireable for the url to be displayed on one line, but if it is too long to fit on one line in a column, it should be broken at a suitable place (such as after a slash/virgule). Websters encourages this application, whereas Oxford's New Hart's Rules mentions the perhaps somewhat antiquated use of 'http://' as well as placing the address within angle brackets.
