  1. I know What The Font, but not What Font Is; thanks — bookmarked :)

    For stuff related to The Zone, I recommend the references linked from the section Professions and work of Wikipedia’s article on this phenomenon, which goes by several names (the article’s titled “Flow”).

  2. I like the font website. Both of them fail for fonts rendered at 20 points, but at 50 points I could get things recognized. WhatTheFont is nice in that it fills the letters in for you. For Verdana I got correct match from WhatFontIs but not from WhatTheFont
