Does anybody use mathematical formulas for determining a weights up or down?
Does anybody have anything good to say about linear font scaling?
Do you think that theories can't be trusted & only the eye can tell?

What do you think is the limits are of the genuinely useful weight range? I got thinking about this because I was reading (in www.daidala.com?) that Jean-Fran
