New typography term: Keming (improper kerning)

From Ironic Sans, a new typography term: "Keming" -- improper kerning. Link (Thanks, Alex!)


  1. Silly word. The only people who’ll get the joke are font geeks, and according to font geeks no font anywhere is ever kerned properly. To them, “kerning” and “keming” have exactly the same meaning. So who needs the extra word?

  2. A similar situation happens to me, but its not kearning at all… but rather people who enter my name into databases usually get my last name wrong changing the last two letters “rn” to “m”.
