I know this is due to the type face, but I think we need a bit more space between the two “v”. (I am using IE 8 and I don’t know how it looks in other browsers.)


I don't think anything complex is needed, just setting the letter spacing to be a big larger in the CSS should do the job.

I see what you mean, but how do you propose to implement this? Actually adding a space would just break the tag into the [mv] and [vm] tags, which is even worse. – Pops Oct 8 '10 at 12:27

The characters are close to each other. [m] looks like [rn]. Which can be embarising viewing the [pom] tag. But you get used to it. – Toon Krijthe Oct 8 '10 at 12:34

@Pop letter-spacing? – Yi Jiang Oct 8 '10 at 12:52
    
@Pop maybe letter spacing, or a different typeface, it looks ok in the "drop down menu" – Ian Ringrose Oct 8 '10 at 15:03
    
Arial is such a crappy font. No distinction between uppercase i and lowercase l either. IIllIIll – Uphill Luge Oct 8 '10 at 15:55
    
It looks okay when bold, but I agree, some letter spacing would be nice in the regular style. – Jon Seigel Oct 8 '10 at 17:27
    
[m-v-vm] perhaps? That's a bit tedious to type. – James McNellis Oct 8 '10 at 20:32

@James - not if you set up [m-v-vm] as the main tag and [mvvm] as a synonym. Entering "mvvm" will get automatically converted to "m-v-vm" – ChrisF Oct 8 '10 at 22:44
    
@ChrisF: Ah; a good point. I like that then. – James McNellis Oct 9 '10 at 1:31
