My "cringe moment" comes when participants in these discussions go any farther
than "check to see what is appropriate for your situation" and argue that
there's any such thing as a "one answer fits all" reply to the question. It may
come as a surprise to some to discover just how much fixed-font text delivery is
still going on outside the software world, but how long should it take for
newly-hired professionals to find out if we're working in such an environment?
Isn't determining our delivery requirements and doing what is needed to satisfy
them a basic part of the job?
