@kmicu I see. But as the author of the article says about underlined hyperlinks, things evolve, or should, don't you think?
By the way that's a beautiful website!
@otini yes, today we aren’t constrained by typewriter’s limitations so we can use modern mono‑spaced typefaces designed for screens, laser printers, or terminals; like Latin Modern Mono (with all OpenType format goodies).
For me typewriter variants are only for emulating past look&feel. In the same way like some folks still use bitmap fonts today (e.g. Terminus).
@otini After further investigation ;) Latin Modern Typewriter exists only in old versions of Latin Modern and recent Latin Modern typeface (available in Nix) has only Latin Modern Mono which is is the successor of Typewriter variant with all modern bells & whistles.
Thank you for inspiring me to search for that info! I love reading all those GUST typography papers 🙃
@kmicu Ooh, that's cool.
Does your last emoji indicates irony? 😂
Upside down face shows that “I could be silly” cuz I like to read “some obscure typography papers”. I really like to read that stuff.
PS Usually I use irony mark ⸮ to indicate irony. Generally I try to not use sarcasm in short text communication cuz that’s too confusing in already confusing communication method. 🤷
PSPS I’m also afraid that sometimes I sound like an asshole when I reply. Sorry for that. Not my intention at all. (◍•ᴗ•◍)
@kmicu Oh, I have come to use the upside down face to signal sarcasm so I wasn't sure.
I love typography papers too! Where do you find them? What is GUST?
No offence taken at all, at any of your messages. 😊
@otini I’ve checked now and see that upside down face can mean sarcasm too (even more often than silliness). Didn’t know that.
GUST is ((Polish) System TeX User Group). It’s responsible for BachoTeX conference, e-foundry† creating e.g. Latin Modern, Tex Gyre typefaces, or TeX ‘Pearls’‡ (aka TeX beauties and oddities).
Some papers are at http://www.gust.org.pl/projects/e-foundry/latin-modern#Readings
