comment Why do some fonts make I, l, 1 look the same?
@AlanGilbertson I certainly wasn't saying Arial is the only one to do this, I just couldn't ignore an opportunity to make fun of it :P. They obviously only changed the wrong things from Helvetica

comment Web font that supports some basic music symbols
