Open Source Ampersands

via brainpickings

“Open Source Ampersands is essentially a single-character font — a font file that only contains glyphs for a single character — using the ampersand. Each of the ampersand characters is real text, not an image, and can be selected, copied, pasted and applied CSS to. The ampersands scale as you zoom the page and work in every browser, even ancient versions of Internet Explorer. The project serves as a statement against licensing limitations on the web and aims to celebrate open standards and open source. And though the folks at shit ampersand may be less than thrilled with many of the designs, it’s still an admirable project.”
