A type diff tool that visually contrasts the differences http://www.honeytraveler.com/pharmacy/ between two fonts.

This is lovely new tool to help you see the differences between 2 typefaces - ideal for fine-tuning your font stacks :)

codepoints

There was a lot of talk about punctuation marks, specifically quotes, accents and dashes. Jessica Hische announced her little guide “Quotes & Accents” and amongst the links was this lovely site “codepoints”, retweeted by @markboulton, created by @m_strehl. Definitely worth a look - beautifully put together and excellent references ;)

Finding Characters
It’s hard to find one certain character in over 110,000 codepoints. This site aims to make it as easy as possible […]

America: Elect! The action-packed journey to US election day in graphic novel form post on guardian

Following a tweet from @cole007 - I was very impressed with this page on The Guardian's website. Though I like this scrolling effect, I have to admit that I have grown tired of it as it is often used in a similar manner, quite predictable. However, when used for story telling as in this case - I do think it works very well :)
What do you think?
