Why “TypeMetal”?

“Type Metal” is a printer’s term, that refers to a set of alloys from which movable type is cast. Type metal must retain precise typographical edges when solid, while being easily melted and recast into new letter forms.

This namesake gives TypeMetal an excellent set of goals to strive for: Making HTML malleable, while lending itself to the precision of a craftsman’s workmanship. We hope it helps you produce work you can take pride in!
