I found a typographic tweak over at Forrst that I had to implement at once. Adam Withcroft had hand tweaked his blog so that all his posts showed the italic version of the ampersand (&) from Baskerville even though that wasn’t his regular font. I can really relate to that kind of work.
He had grown tired of doing it by hand and implemented a automatic Baskervillification of all ampersands into the function.php and style.css. Excellent idea, I implemented mr Withcrofts tweak myself. Not that Minion Pro’s ampersand is that different, but Baskerville is a bit nicer and this tweak forces the italic version to show up everywhere.
His tweak was really simple to follow and usable for any WordPress-site that doesn’t use Baskerville italic for bread.
