The "the" project is much cooler than I was expecting. Very nicely done. But if my wife finds out that I'm wasting time this morning looking at a website devoted to the word "the" she's going to break out the rolling pin.

Very cool.
I've done a lot of "decorative" typography and find the way you treat "The" to be a real make-or-break decision in the design. It's like the overture to the rest of the performance.

For a website about typography, the text sure does render in a very ugly way in Firefox.

It's amazing how the links are only apparent when you mouseover them. How usable.
