MyFonts

I have no connection with the typeface vendor, MyFonts — except that I’m a customer and I’m impressed.

A couple of days ago I received an email from them to say that I could download a free update of a font that I had purchased a few months ago. The old version isn’t going to crash my machine, but the new version has, “Contextual Alternates for beginning and ending lowercase letters; and Stylistic Alternates for A, F, and T. [Also,] kerning has been refined in a few letter combinations [and the] Uppercase "K" has been redrawn slightly.”

I wish that we could expect that kind of service from all the various vendors on the Internet.
