Murzkine Mock-Up (II)

Still trying to come up with a theme I could live with.
For a while in any case.

A contestant to the previous Peach-on-Chocolate sketch.

This time doodled in Photoshop, so I could play with the Watercolor Brushes.

Normal text without anti-alias: Verdana 11px (20px line height).
Headings/Quotes: Georgia of various sizes

The latter will be rendered by sIFR into overlaying Flash. Awesome tool when not overused. :)

How does Verdana 11px look like in Thai, though?

The Of And To A In

Everyone probably knows that ‘E’ is the most common letter used in English. A child might even learn this trick from a cartoon or a kid’s spy movie before knowing what ‘cryptography’ means.

Wordcount took a more daunting task of finding out what 86,800 most frequently used English words are. The most impressive job of all: they found an interesting and visually-meaningful way to present the data.
Most frequently used Enhlish words. Presented with style.
