So, I’ve been listing to stuff folks have been saying about the
Bookman font we use. Most people like the font, but some feel there
aren’t enough words/line, so your eyes move too much.
So, I spent the weekend playing with typography, and I’ve come up
with a compromise. The thing is: it looks good to me, but I don’t
want to mess up the read for others if it doesn’t work for them. So,
I’ve put up a couple of pages using both the old and new–they don’t
correspond exactly, and the book now paginates differently, but it
should be enough to give you an idea.
Try them on screen, and try them printed out.
I’d appreciate any and all comments.
(Oh, and I’ll be changing the font used for inline code such as
variable and class names, but that hasn’t happened yet)
