college, the Mac would have never had multiple typefaces or
proportionally spaced fonts...........


Obviously, as book people, type is an important part of our work. And
as a Mac user, I meant to send, as Beverly has done, the part about

I saw the entire text and it is very impressive --- connecting the dots
