    Probably, but Jim has more taste than to allow the font on his new shiny website. :)

    There is a whole industry out there trying to ban it. Here is just one: http://bancomicsans.com/main/

    why? a handscript looks better for birthday greetings. Any hand script would do I suppose.

    having had a look around the internet I am so surprised at the stupidity of people actually organising a worldwide hate campaign against a particular font. It must stem from some personal vendetta lost is time.
    Ok so how about Bradley hand script, Dorchester Script, Palace Script any one will do me, an Old English Script would be handy as well. As well as a western style playbill typeface. A shadow font like Granby or Rockwell whatever. All of which add style to different types of post.

    From my quick look around the internet it seems like the "Comic Sans must die" campaign is just a way for some web/graphic designers to get a load of cheap publicity.

    Oh No! It's all going to be untidy now and so....so...undisciplined! We'll have people shouting in bright red font. It shouldn't be allowed.

    Feel letter to The Times coming on... Sir, I am disgusted...

    PS I like Comic Sans too and use it on all my eBay listings. So 2 fingers to the self-serving web/graphic designers I say.
