Everyone loves the ampersand. But what I failed to find in a search was examples of some of the best question marks.
I'm currently working on the visual design of a help system, and I'm looking for a clean question mark that looks good on its own as an icon (even at 12x12 pixels).
The rest of the design uses the classic Univers at the 45 weight (which is my preferred non-Helvetica Helvetica), but I don't really like the shape of its question mark when it stands on its own.
Tw Cen MT Bold looks otherwise good, but with the rest of the design being light grays, hairlines and Light Univers, it's a bit too fat. And the Regular Tw Cen MT has an entirely different shape for its question mark.
What would you use for such a circumstance?
