Just some brief and somewhat-pedantic suggestions for improvements

I've been big Unicode fan ("... ever since the release of their 1980

difficult to read/parse in the middle of text with my particular
combination of typeface, font size, antialiasing and screen resolution.

Either that or I'm getting old.
