eww: Now With Fonts

I’ve now pushed the font-related shr changed to the Emacs trunk. Use the `F’ eww command to toggle whether to using variable-pitch fonts.

Here’s some results:

font4 font3 font2 font1

Kinda looks like Mosaic in 1992, eh?

Now I just need to implement CSS3 3D animation transforms…

eww not can haz different line pitch

The version of eww with variable-width fonts is basically usable now, but here’s the problem:

lines

Notice the weird line heights in the column to the left where it says “We commit to shine the light on our obsessive stalking of Wikimedia employees”?  That’s because there’s a <h1> in the middle column, and those characters are taller.  And there’s apparently only possible to have one line hight per, er, line.

That’s kinda ugly, especially if you throw really line heights (like images) into the mix.  So I dunno about mixing differently-sized fonts like this…

Opinions?

Australian Comics

Whenever in a new city where I can read the language, I try to visit interesting comics shops.  This can be rather difficult, since what’s interesting to me isn’t really what comics shops make a living off of.  I’m looking for stuff I can’t get anywhere else, which means small press and local books, and there is no art comics book store finder.

So binging for “good comics stores <city>” will invariably point me to the one that has the best selection of American superhero books, of which my interest is pretty low.  For Sydney that’s King Comics, which turned out to be a perfectly nice comic book store with a shelf of Australian comics that was pretty slim.  To say the least.

But then I went to Canberra.  Score!

Impact Comics only had two small shelves of Aussie stuff, but they were jam-packed, so I got a nice little stack of stuff.  (There was still books left on the shelves after I left.)

I haven’t read any of it yet, but it looks pretty nice:

Somebody really should set up a “destination comic book store” site to inform us tourists what’s worth seeing.  It’s too bad crowdsourcing is dead, otherwise I’d feel tempted to create one myself…

Critters

We were walking along the beach and saw lots of these strange shapes…

Examining them closer shows that there’s some kind of wee critter making them:

A crustacean?  Itsy worm?  Shellfish?

Anybody know what these are?
