at least that's what typographica says in this article, but i just had to point out that the "teardrop-shaped terminals" in Zapf Book and Perla are aptly named lachrymal terminals.
sorry for nit-pickin', stewf, but that was just buggin me. >^P

There are plenty enough lachrymal terminals. I want to see more mycocene ones!
Ha ha! Obscure latinate shape names!
Last time I was in Scotland all of my luggage was sent to the Lachrymal terminal by mistake, thanks for asking, everything's fine now, i was missing $38.70 in cash and one of the buckles was broken but apart from that...
