When the Mac took over the publishing industry many great things happened. But, as with any new technology, the potential for unintended consequences can be a problem – and so it is with typography.
In this blog post, Ilene Strizver talks about the crime of stretching and squeezing type in a way that the type designer never intended.

1. Ignored OpenType features
2. Underused Style Sheets
3. Overuse/misuse of tracking and kerning
4. Inattention to alignment
5. Dumb punctuation in onscreen typography
