@jackerhack Interesting. How does the texture differ for greens and reds/browns?

The Indian vegetarian / non-vegetarian mark is a good example of being meaningless to colourblind people. Ask @jackerhack, he knows.

@ap00rv We’ve always found Times to be very readable, and LCDs have, if anything, only improved legibility. Thanks for the feedback though.

@ap00rv Are you saying ‘widely installed’ is undesirable?

1:56 PM Nov 27th 2012 in reply to ap00rv

@ap00rv Not really. It’s well digitized, widely installed and (we believe) quite good at its job as a body type.

@ap00rv Sorry, Twitter was showing a low-res version. The type looks fine in the screenshot on yfrog. What looks wrong to you?
