Combining Fonts

Another one from Jake Archibald!

This one is using two @font-face sets for the same font-family name. The second overrides the first, but only select characters of it, thanks to unicode-range.

You know how designers love ampersands? It's a thing. Dan Cederholm once pointed out some advice from Robert Bringhurst:

Since the ampersand is more often used in display work than in ordinary text, the more creative versions are often the more useful. There is rarely any reason not to borrow the italic ampersand for use with roman text.

Then Drew McLellan showed how to do that (without a <span>), using unicode-range.
