Please to note: Those are REAL smallcaps, not computer-generated falsies. Font-nerds will thank you.


Ohhh, haven't seen smallcaps in a while. Nifty find. Great link too. ^.^ I normally just have to cheat.

I know they're supposed to be distinct glyphs, but how do you tell the difference?

Also kerning between K and I in "KICKASS" seems a littlebit off :-P

Faked smallcaps look flimsy because they are just capitals that are scaled down. This results in a thinner stroke weight, which at smaller sizes can affect legibility and at larger sizes they look more out of place.



Real smallcaps have a stroke weight that matches the capitals—this way they emphasize text subtly and otherwise allow it to blend into a paragraph of upper and lower case.

Canyouhea- These buggers live inside mobile phones and will wait until you have to explain something in great detail and, right in the middle of your diatribe, will disconnect you causing you to keep going on and on unaware that you're talking to nobody. Then you must call the person back and ask THEM to find out where you left off. :argh:

That link isn't THAT relevant to this thread, but I figure it could use a bump anyway :)

Yarganarg:  A Boojum that causes otherwise rational people to send a washcloth through the garbage disposal or turn the thermostat to 35F when it's 117F outside (resulting in Titanic-killing icebergs on the roof).  The Yarganarg doesn't DO these things, he makes YOU do them.
Well, that's hardly my fault.  I was just doing what I do, doing my little dance, singing my little song, you know?  And then Hirley0 got on the dance floor and said

SHAKE THAT
First ^  Then V

And I did.  I didn't feel like I had any choice.  Between P-Funk and Hirley0, I became the man reptillian menace I am today.

Bootsy Collins did this to me.
