# Somehow
Comic Sans becomes almost pretty when pixellated all to fuck like that

# it's the little round letter a that gives it away
'tis why it's used in pre-schools and nurserys everywhere - easier for the little shits darlings to draw than the curly a in most fonts

Trouble is it's become so prevalent in the education field that now it's being perceived as childish when seen out of context - like on top of the National Rail Enquiries page f'rinstance.

It's sort of like a regional accent - there's nothing wrong with it per se, but Comic Sans makes you blink when heard in an unexpected place. Imagine an East End of Lahndon market stall manned by Phil wossisname from Time Team.

Bloody Comic Sans!

There's nothing Comic about it, and why isn't there a comic serif?

# what is the difference?
I've always thought that 'Font' and 'typeface' were the same thing.
(, Fri 17 Feb 2006, 9:28, archived)
#
A typeface is one particular design or face of a font, independent of size or other attribute. Therefore, a full description of a font is by its symbol set, typeface, size, style, and weight. Generally, however, the differences amongst fonts within a typeface are described by their size, style, and weight.
