9-bits:

Input is a flexible system of fonts designed specifically for code by David Jonathan Ross. It offers both monospaced and proportional fonts, all with a large range of widths, weights, and styles for richer code formatting.

Impressive. As far as I know, it’s the first programming font that’s built to serve a mixture of serif and sans-serif as style differentiators within code.

This is quite the typeface set: 168 fonts! And it’s fully “hackable,” in that you can run an included python script to build a custom font set with the weights, widths, proportional-spacing, line-height, and glyph styles of your choice.

I still prefer Source Code Pro, but Input takes it to another level.

Sorry.

My tumblr is devoid of content. I really don’t post much, I’m mostly here to follow others. Maybe if I had a smart phone…

Subpixel-Antialiasing Text Rendering Bookmarklet for Safari

Got Safari 5+? Install this bookmarklet (drag it to your Bookmarks bar/window):

SubpixelText

Click it, and it adds a CSS style to render all HTML text on the page into subpixel-antialiasling. Click it again, and it will switch the text rendering to full-pixel antialiasing. One more click, and it switches back to the page’s original text rendering.

What is this for, you ask? It’s because certain websites have now taken to rendering their text in this full-pixel antialiasing. It’s smooth and clean, but I find it makes smaller text too light to read on a white background. Using this bookmarklet remedies that little injustice. Enjoy!

HELLO.

Here I am, starting up YET ANOTHER personal bloggy/statusy/linky/profiley site. Maybe I’ll use this one more?
