I’m a Europhile. So sue me. You’ll see a lot of accents in my arts section: umlauts, accents aigus, accents graves, diagonal lines going this way and that. American computer systems often trip and fall on accents, so I write the dots and lines in pen on my pages and have the newspaper designers figure out how to make them work. Sometimes the designers don’t like me very much.
Fortunately, Designer Scott has a great sense of humor. Look how beautiful he made my Worth A Look section this week.
(Oh, you. This is just a dummy version of the page. The real one is fine.)
