There is a conflict between the article and it's description on the disambiguation page for "Georgia". It states that the font was developed for Apple but the article says it was developed for Microsoft. I don't know what the truth is, but somebody who knows should change it. NappilainenĜ

Along with Hoefler Text and FF Scala, it is one of the few typefaces in common use with ranging, or “old style," numerals (also called text figures), which are designed to complement lowercase text without disrupting the overall texture the way lining figures do. This can present some difficulties however in displaying numbers in columnar layout, as the figures are not monospaced.
This is a wrong information. There are hundreds of high quality typefaces with old style figures (OSF), actually most text fonts have them. And typefaces like Adobe Garamond and Minion (both with OSF) are much more commonly used than the above mentioned. Also OSF in generals are not causing problems for columnar layouts. This is true for proportional figures, but normal lining figures are proportional too. This is why some fonts have special monospace figures. So there are actually 4 types of figures: proportional (OSF + lining) and monospace (OSF + lining). —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 13:28, 22 December 2007 (UTC)
- Agreed, and such info would probably be better placed on the text figures page anyway. But the figure style is a striking difference between Georgia and Times New Roman, so I've put back a single sentence on this in the para comparing them. Qwfp (talk) 17:03, 6 January 2008 (UTC)
Georgia vs. Times New Roman
Times New Roman is slightly narrower, with a more vertical axis
This is not true. In fact, Georgia's letters have a vertical axis, whereas the axes of Times New Roman's letters are slightly askew (for example, compare the letters g or o) . --SelfishSeahorse (talk) 16:20, 15 September 2013 (UTC)
Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page
Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessaryily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request it's removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.
