I read on that there Twitter that Opera man Patrick H Lauke has created a Super Mario World Font Set. Being a chap of a certain age that grew up playing said game on my SNES, I immediately wanted to use this font oh so very badly.
So this blog post isn't to put across any thoughts, ideas, news or wotnot. Nope. It's purely just for me to use the font on my site for the sake of using the font on my site. Out of a love for typography, video games and nostalgia.
And so. Drum-roll ...
This is some text using the Super Mario World Font
I achieved the black outline in modern browsers using the following
text-shadow: 1px 1px 0 #000, -1px 1px 0 #000, 1px -1px 0 #000, -1px -1px 0 #000;
Pretty indulgent right? Ah, so sue me! Actually, I'd like to make clear that the original font and that little picture of Mario are Copyright © Nintendo. So with that in mind, please don't sue me :)
As you were ...
