Thanks to Rail for submitting the new Little Job questions. The pool of little jobs was getting a little stale. Time for some new research!

semantics sheeshkas I might as well add that 'font' is just as relevant as fount. It's an old argument and neither word is proven right :) A font is a receptacle (basin / stand) for Holy Water that they use in (some) churches to baptise. So it has a 'your knowledge comes from a higher source' connotation. Which is probably better than fount which has a 'your knowledge comes from where pidgeons just errr bathed in'.

So be a font if you like biggie. :D, and Barry, you just ummm look out for those pigeons ;)

Ms. Biggie,

I don't mean to be picking on you at all, I'm sorry if it came out that way. I though I knew something. Apparently, I only knew the 1/2 of it.

Mr. Squirrel,

I had done a lookup of "fount" and did not do one on "font". Apparently your definition of "font" is number 1 and mine is number 2. And it even mentions that it's equivalent to "fount"! You learn something new everyday.
