>>I've racked my brain for a suitable use for this face, but have yet to find one.

Rack no more. It's a lovely choice if you have software that will substitute fonts for you. You get a document that needs some weirdo font that you don't have. You can't find any instances of it visually. Maybe it's just a space or something and it doesn't matter. Or maybe your system's substituted another font that looks reasonable but is wrong.

Algerian to the rescue. Have your software sub it for the mystery font. Anything that turns hideous ... why, that's the text you're after.
