Help! I am stuck! Maybe there is some bug in whole Wikipedia.

I think I am entering valid HTML- and CSS-code to this page but somehow Wikipedia renders it to invalid code.

Update: I think it is okay now. I must use single quotes inside double-quotes or vice versa.

I've added the Luxi Sans, Serif, and Mono families in the CSS.

They're Lucida semi-free fonts with a different name for X11.

This is a pretty useless page[edit]

.. especially for those without the fonts installed. Its actual content is about three paragraphs of useful information. Please could screenshots be added showing what these fonts actually look like? Thanks. Lupin 01:32, 21 July 2005 (UTC)

...... I fully agree with this comment! But the links are there and a better image of the fonts is given on Lucida Web site. Foxandpotatoes 16:57, 4 September 2005 (UTC)

I agree, Lupin... images showing what the fonts are like would be a good improvement. UkPaolo/TALK 13:22, 7 December 2005 (UTC)
Images Added! better now? atanamir 00:52, 1 May 2006 (UTC)
Better, indeed. But instead of the lorem ipsum blubber, some text describing the font characteristic would be better still. 13:37, 18 May 2006 (UTC)

See also section[edit]

Is there any specific reason why Wingdings is in the "See also" section? As far as I know, the only thing Wingdings and Lucida have in common is that they are both fonts. --Keith111 (talk) 05:32, 17 July 2009 (UTC)

"[Wingdings was] originally developed in 1990 by Microsoft by combining glyphs from Lucida Icons, Arrows, and Stars licensed from Charles Bigelow and Kris Holmes." (from the article)

Inconsistency; please check and fix[edit]

The "Usage" section says Lucida Sans Demibold is used by the MacOS interface, but the page for Lucida Grande says MacOS uses ... well, Lucida Grande. I assume it's the latter, since Safari for Windows has an embedded copy of the font, but maybe whoever added that fact knows something I don't. Octan (talk) 21:02, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

Agree, was wondering when reading that sentence. I myself use Mac OS X and really think it's just Grande Bold. Tonyngkh (talk) 21:24, 27 December 2009 (UTC)


This article omits any information on copyright for this family of fonts. It is my belief that this font is not open source, and therefore royalties have to be paid for its use outside the USA. Is this correct and if so how are licensing costs calculated? FreeFlow99 (talk) 10:53, 28 April 2013 (UTC)

External links modified[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,
