Regarding the Idea That Maybe You Can Make a Copy of the Helvetica Font Files on an iPhone and Just Give Them Marker Felt’s File Names

Dozens of readers emailed to suggest this; I tried it, it doesn’t work. In short, font names are embedded within the data of the font file, they don’t come from the font’s file name.

It wasn’t a bad idea to try it, though.
