Microsoft's arrogant fonts
« on: July 26, 2012, 05:09:25 pm »

According to today's WSJ, page A 4, 14-point type means type which is 14/72 of an inch tall.  Microsoft doesn't like this rule.  Its 14-point type Calibri Bold font is not that tall.  A ballot summary printed with Calibri Bold has now been challenged in court.  The question of whether 14-point type is 14/72 inches tall or whether it is whatever Microsoft says it is, is now pending decision by the Michigan Supreme Court.
