MIKE INDUSTRIES -- Mike Davidson, the guy who redesigned ESPN in 2001, likes rich typography and he wants to use HTML/CSS to deliver it. "With CSS we can size, style, color, kern, show, and hide our text but we can’t deliver something classical typesetters have delivered since at least the 15th century: custom typography. Until now."
Davidson, Shaun Inman and Tomas Jogin have "released into the public domain a scalable, multiline, Flash 6 compatible version of IFR to help you reduce the amount of browser text in your life and free the world from the scourge of Arial." Presentation is sweet--but will old-timers appreciate the browser taking away their ability to change font sizes through the pull-down menu? And will text browsers see anything different? No.
The sIFR (Scalable Inman Flash Replacement) is a standards-compliant way to deliver rich typographical text in a flexible manner to over 90% of web users.
