I'm standing firmly on the side that says design and layout are ART, and
trying to present them, or reduce them to, a serious of equations is fraught
with failure. As my comment says, engineers should stick to stuff where
formulae rule, and leave the 'other stuff' to experts. Still, I am sure they
get equally a good giggle at code written by technical writers

Are you implying that the content of the article is somehow wrong or
objectionable?

I used to be a typesetter back in the day, using a DOS-based program to
generate galleys for print production. Given how limited the options for
finessing type were back then, I found this article pretty
interesting/illuminating in terms of how to work with digital type for
electronic media.

Of course, I couldn't read that without a comment.

To you guys, I will say this. This link contains high macabre comedy
regarding how an engineer approaches typography. I need medicating urgently.
