Typos

We have 500-odd people on this list, all of them interested in type in one
way or another. There *must* be a small percentage of retired/semi-retired
members who have plenty of time on their hands (like myself;-), with
brains-full of knowledge, tips and tricks about type, and who are prepared
to share this experience with us young 'uns?

Can't you write a small article for the website, something along the lines
of... I dunno:

'The Anatomy of a Glyph' -- a diagram of a couple of letters of the
alphabet with arrows showing the names of all the various parts.

'What is a Typeface?' -- explaining the difference between 'physical'
punches, and type stored in memory on the computer.

'Postscript v TrueType' -- comparisons.

'Why I Love Times New Roman'

'When I was a Boy...'

Dozens of ideas! Get off your arses and get your bloody fingers out!
