Schriftwechsel

In an internal memorandum distributed on Wednesday, the department declared “Courier New 12″ – the font and size decreed for US diplomatic documents for years – to be obsolete and unacceptable after February 1.

“In response to many requests and with a view to making our written work easier to read, we are moving to a new standard font: ‘Times New Roman 14′,”

There are only three exceptions to the draconian new typographical rules: telegrams, treaty materials prepared by the State Department’s legal affairs office and documents drawn up for the president’s signature, it said.

As those will all be done in the MS Comic Font.
