In Response To: font (howekern)

: As for the font, I always thought that small-caps Verdana was a pretty good
: approximation for Bank Gothic. And Howe likes frames so much... other
: B.org sites use 'em, besides the story page. Source does, for one.

I've given Jesse grief over it, too.

Frames suck - pure and simple. They make it impossible to direct-link to a page, without losing the site's identity or relying on javascript. They're unnecessary in these days of widespread CSS support in modern browsers. And they're coded wrong so often that they're simply an eyesore on the HTML landscape.

If I could, I'd make Hamish convert his sites to non-frames formats... but he's bigger than I am, and he wields a mean caber.
