As A Type Nerd, It Would Be Very Inapropriate Of Me To Not Inform You That OS X Leopard’s Mail.app Defaulted To Employ The Typeface “Marker Felt” To Set Its Note Text

That is right, Marker Felt. Thank god you can change it.

This escalated the said typeface to the level of Helvetica by using it as a default UI text, and also proved that Per-folder File Sharing is not the only feature that Leopard had brought back from OS 9.

Mr. Gruber and Mr. Coles, there’s your cue.

And about that “coming to an end” bit, it seems that the city of Albany, NY, is spared for the moment.

Thanks to AppleInsider for the images, and Veer’s The Skinny for the excellent shirt information.

Good night.

  1. I have to agree with you. Both typefaces (especially you-know-what) had been misused and embezzled so many times that it’s now virtually impossible for us to even begin to think of an application that does not make us cringe.

    However, exceptions do exist.

    Thanks for stopping by, Corey. Happy reading!
