A little nitpicking, my dear Mr. Brandt:

"True German" or "Gothic" fonts have nothing to do with the ancient Germanic people known as Goths. They were invented far later, by a clergyman. I'll try to translate the whole story later.

And maybe it will be of some interest to know that Hitler's government was the authority that abolished the use of Gothic fonts, in 1943, after their decline throughout the early half of 20th century.

~Best regards,

Ovidius
