Just a random amusing bit on how the U.S. gov't is officially changing fonts!
They're going from Courier New 12 to Times New Roman 14 because it has "a crisper, cleaner, more modern look". That last bit amuses me because Times seems older than Courier.
Some Googling reveals that Times New Roman dates back to 1932, when it was created for the Times of London, while Courier New is based on the IBM Selectric typewriter's font, which didn't exist until 1961. "More modern" indeed.
(Okay, so admittedly I'm sure the "modernness" is more about the ability of new-fangled "word processors" to print in proportional fonts not available to ancient typewriters... But it's still pretty amazing how long it took the gov't to make that switch.)
Now that you've learned that bit off trivia about the origins of Times and Courier, how about this bit about the conflict between Times Roman and Times New Roman? Oddly, Times New Roman is actually older than Times Roman.
