Font of Glory

How many of you have used the "World Wide Web" thing?

I ask for a reason. You see, I sometimes use it, and I found a web site recently. It had the most dignified, noble font ever. It brought me to weep.

It was a serif-havin' font, a little bit like Courier or Times New Roman. But what a difference! Maybe a pixel off here, a pixel added there, but the difference was awestriking.

I don't even remember what the web site was about. It was a typical personal website. But the author did specifically ask that no one steal her special font. Hundreds asked for permission; I don't think anyone would be so crude as to steal it without permission. Standing in the face of nobility makes us nobler in our deeds, in the same way that being in a public bathroom makes us far more likely to wash our hands.

I would share the URL, but I don't think I'm worthy.
