    As Tim Brown explained in the previous post on font formats, glyphs in web fonts are stored as Bézier curves. The shapes are drawn as outlines that consist of nodes on the contour and so-called handles, which help control the exact shape of the curves. Since the contours are stored as abstract mathematical formulas, they are infinitely smooth and precise. As such, they can be scaled to any size.

  21. Hinting Tutorial
    When discussing TrueType hinting it is best to think of TrueType as a programming language. Font companies who produce TrueType all use different approaches. Individual typographic engineers in a font company may also use different hinting philosophies. A single type engineer may use a different overall strategy from typeface1 to typeface.
  22. Microsoft Typography – TrueType Hinting (1 of 5):Introduction
    Hinting is an essential part of the production of a quality font. It is indispensable in every font intended to be legible at small sizes on low resolution output devices. A well-hinted font offers the quality only provided in the past by hand-tuned bitmaps – but with all the speed and reduced memory requirements which characterize outline font formats. Moreover, because the bitmaps are still produced by an outline font, text can be rotated, scaled and viewed at different sizes, and even printed out while maintaining high image quality.

  26. Weird Quantum Effect Can Make Materials Transparent
    When you shine light on a substance, part of the light is reflected, part is transmitted and part is absorbed. If you choose the color of light and the substance sensibly, you can arrange things so that all the light is absorbed. Nothing special about that, right? OK, but what if you could shine a second light on the substance and make it transparent for the first light field? That would be a bit strange, wouldn’t it?

  29. Comparing Brazilian states with countries: Brazilian equivalents | The Economist
    THE notion that Brazil is in the vanguard of a group of emerging countries on their way to economic superpower-dom is so widely accepted as to have become trite. But how far along this road is Brazil? One way to get a quick answer is to compare Brazilian states with countries. The map below presents country equivalents for every state in terms of GDP, GDP per person and population. It throws up some curiosities: who knew that Alagoas, a state in the north-east that is currently more famous for its murder rate than for its magnificent beaches, has the same GDP per person as China? It also suggests that even the comparatively rich states in the south and south-east have some way to go before they can be compared with wealthy places in the northern hemisphere. The gauchos of Rio Grande do Sul will not necessarily be delighted to learn that GDP per person in their state is close to that of Gabon.
