Note: The normal programming of the website is still temporarily on hold in an effort to finish the Open Source Writing book. I fully intend to pick things up very soon, but I must first send a finished draft to my editor/publisher. They’ve been very patient and I’ve been irresponsible.
While I am trying to work in seclusion (or at least a reasonable approximation thereof) in order to finish the Open Source Writing Book, I put together a layout that I wanted to share. (Mostly because I liked it and thought it cool.)
It covers the typographical niceties that distinguish a typesetting system from a traditional Word Processor and will appear in the “Writing and Editing” chapter of the book as a double page spread. (In this layout, the material appears as a single, long-form poster.) I’d love to hear people’s comments, thoughts or suggestions. Particularly if there are any additional elements that I missed and you think might be included.
