pnathan: elephant bypasses fence to drink from pool (Default)
Looking though Hacker News, I see that Computer Modern was ported or something to the web. Perhaps half of the comments are rants about how Computer Modern doesn't fit current design style and fad.

I don't really get the hate - I've always viewed CM as a strikingly elegant and timeless font. In part, I suppose that's my perspective - I have several math books written in the 60s/70s - pre-TeX - where the book is literally typewritten, as in typewriter and monospace. Terrifically ugly, without a doubt. Further, after years of looking at fonts (& being a small bit of a font nerd when younger), I favor serifs. They look better, I think. More easy on the long-form eyes.
