Typekit Turns One

Typekit, the guys who supply online fonts, celebrated their first birthday by announcing a deal with Adobe to supply some of their fonts. Brilliant! Now you can get some old favourites like Garamond.
Not all of them are available on the Personal plan, but in the spirit of the current South African political climate, I settled on Minion. The other improvement is that they can now do true italics with Internet Explorer, which makes this blog more readable to those who still use IE.
Update 19-Sept: a reader rudely complained about my use of ClearType because he is still using XP and switched it off. I have changed my default font to Palatino, with Minion as a fallback, as an experiment. No doubt he'll complain about that too.
