pet peeve


The typography teacher at Cornish (where I attended art school) would deduct points from a person's overall grade everytime they used the term "font". So, I got very used to my design-major friends correcting the use of the word "font" with the word "TYPEFACE!!!". Someone's "font" rant macro made me want to pass on that anal-retentive attention to a word that everyone knows and no one cares to use correctly. (Cause, really, who cares?)
