(not so) new faces

http://textasplayground.net/assembling/ changed its typefaces this morning
and http://www.r-echos is still alive so far…

Hmmm, not sure about that new esthetic on http://www.textasplayground.net/assembling/...
God knows how much I love the Didot family, and I'm also very keen on the rough aspect of having the links in blue monospace for a general natural-non-fussed-par-defaut-style.
But It's a bit like chocolate cake with jam: putting to nice things together doesn't necessarily makes the final thing super nice. But chocolate and jam cake is a matter of taste, some people love it.

I love the esthetic of Number 0 of to-be -printed R-echos: strong with fat bold characters, delicate with he transparency of the plain yellow.
