Much better - apart from the distracting *b*l*i*n*k*i*n*g*.

I give up for now, two links, and I'm only distracted from whatever real content there might be hidden somewhere....
Sorry. Should have warned you. It has been done by a bunch of art students, and is no compliant with anything you care about.

On the other hand, there is a nice essay by Beatrice Warde on typeface selection, and it is plain text. In fact, I liked the essays quite a bit, and they were fairly normal (didn’t check for frames, compliance, etc., but was able to read, once I enlarged the type a bit!)
