Comments on Linotype Zapfino

Comments by Typeworx in Toronto on Linotype's Zapfino, a famous font family based on calligraphy by Hermann Zapf. Version 1.1d3 is compared with version 4.0d3, a much worse version frought with problems (no kerning, awkward glyph changes, a weird 400 em square, embedding in any documents disallowed, many characters not accessible in Unicode). Typeworx points out that Zapf's work is yet again shown in a bad light thanks to some inept manufacturers.
