Hi Paul,

There are bits about it I liked too - I would have done it differently, but I 
think that it achieves what they set out to do - talk up their fonts to those 
that want to buy them.

I think that the thread just goes to prove that:
- communication is about effective information transfer rather than our idea of 
what communication should be (rather like art in that respect), and accordingly
- we tread a fine line when dictating "best practices" to others. Sometimes 
they are appropriate, and at other times, they can be so prescriptive as to be 

Best regards, Andrew

The blinking was really annoying (and it was everywhere!), as was the very 
small text.

What I liked was the live rendering of the fonts and the ability to select a 
font and actually be able to type with it, see it at different font sizes etc - 
very handy (I've seen this on another font site too, but I can't recall the url)

The orange scroll bar was a bit of a downer, especially seeing as it was right 
next to the old handy browser scrollbar....

In terms of bad flash, weird UI and 'mystery meat navigation', take a look at 

I have a feeling this thread is 'weaving' off-topic :)
