Pfft.. Opera is more like a Chrysler PT Cruiser Convertible. Firefox is the Corvette ZR1. :D

Elinks actually isn't half bad in graphical mode, and yes, the IE one makes me laugh out loud.

Gah! When you see the signs that say "ye" it's because people are stupid. What the signs said was "e." That letter is called "thorn" and was pronounced the same as "th." When written in calligraphy, it looked similar to a "y," but not identical. People who know nothing of Olde English and Middle English always screw that up. They also think that long s's are lowercase f's and that people in the 1700s spelled things with f's for no good reason. See this news clipping (http://neatorama.cachefly.net/gailpics/franklin.jpg) for an example of the long-s in use. The German is a ligature formed from a long s on the left attached to a short s on the right. Long s was used wherever a lowercase "s" would go. Our "normal" s was called terminal s and was only used at the end of a word or sometimes for the second part of a double s (as in the ligature). Capital S looked the same as it does now.

The 'f' in freight does look like the lower case 's' though.

Wasn't that confusing to readers?

Long s's crossbar didn't go all the way through the vertical bar. They were used to it. That's how it was written printed too. Look at the Wikipedia page. You can see handwriting showing it.

Thanks for that. I have read books in that sort of print, and found it OK after a few pages. I never consciously noticed the difference though.
