They got permission to use the Martinere cover, I recall, so nothing much new to see here.

Yeah, by the way, what’s up with the ‘don't hate me because I'm beautiful’ thing at the bottom of your blog post thing? Was it just to see if anyone would bother decoding it, or, just because you like to make fun of your fans?

Heh.  Just trying something out.  Did you see it in wingdings or in a regular language?  Because I wanted to see how other fonts worked when using my livewriter blogging tool.

On my screen, it's written out in a normal font.  But you see it as symbols?

In other news, the Dutch link doesn't go straight to the title, unfortunately.  I didn't realize that, but there is no perma-link for the elantris page.  So, you have to search for it.  There's a picture of the title on my website, however, so unless you intend to order a copy in Dutch, that should be good enough.

EUOL, with the fonts on the web people will only see that font if they have that font installed, if not it will default to what ever the page font is supposed to be.

You have to be careful if you want a wide goup of people to see any special fonts since all computers (Windows, Mac and Nix) only have about the same 6 fonts installed.

I have the font installed, and I can't see it on the post.  That's what made me curious.

It's one thing to have it installed on your computer, and having it installed on your browser.

It's one in the same.

It's a Fire Fox issue, that browser doesn't support the <font> tag with the face element since it's outdated in HTML and isn't something that's supposed to be supported in HTML 4.1 but IE supports all Legacy tags.

but remember, despite no legacy support whatsoever, Firefox is still "better."

I saw wingdings, but I recognized it from me and my friends messing around in elementary school when we were supposed to be typing, so I copied and pasted it and then changed the font.

Because Legacy support is stupid and any site that uses such code is stupid and anyone who doesn't use Firefox is stupid.  Ya, got to love Mozilla's viral marketing strategy - have all the 14 year olds and people with brain damage market your product for you since you're open source and don't have a marketing budget despite being more or less owned by Google.

Doesn't it just have to do with the doctype description? Firefox has legacy  support for things like <font> in how it renders html 4.0 transitional, but not in xhtml 1.0 transitional?
