Where is the scientific basis for the notion that Joe Average Kid is made into a better human being by playing soccer against kids that are six hours away by car?
Good idea, but is inventing an element the right approach?
My reason to bring this up is that Iâ€™m very interested by how TypeButter accomplishes its kerning: it inserts
kernelements with inline
styleattributes that bear
kernelements. No, you didnâ€™t miss an HTML5 news bite; there is no
kernelement, nor am I aware of a plan for one. TypeButter basically invents a specific-purpose element.
The April, 1935 issue of Everyday Science and Mechanics included this nifty invention which was to be the next logical step in the world of publishing. Basically a microfilm reader mounted on a large pole, the media device was supposed to let you sit back in your favorite chair while reading your latest tome of choice.
