comment What design trend led to movie trailers displaying the title at the top of the screen?
I like this answer. In the world of advertising there are prophets that come up with "brilliant" new "ideas" for the "magic" recipe every day. This will be just one of those people's brilliant ideas that a few people in the industry will be following. It'll either run its course or it'll stick around. Movie promotion tends to be highly formulaic anyway. Basically every movie trailer within a genre has the same plot, same themes regardless of the movie. Movie advertising is less about creativity and more about following known formulas.

comment Yahoo's second day font
Among professional script fonts it's relatively common to make extensive use of opentype features such as contextual alternates in order to change the appearance of a character based on the character before or after it. That said, I haven't found a conclusive match yet. I think it (the day 2 logo) would make a good logo for Yahoo, by the way.

comment Can you help me identify the font used in this text that says “EXPERT WITNESS”?
Pretty sure that's it - the capital "R" of Helvetica is pretty characteristic. If it's not Helvetica, it's something trying very hard to be Helvetica. It may be a slightly heavier weight than this though.

Indeed. I'm surprised they didn't use a dotted or slashed 0.

What modifications do you think "et" and "ro" need? Do you have a screenshot of the problem?
