Agreed. (I was one of the people playing around w/ ideas, but I was  
not coming up w/ anything usable).

I happen to have some metal type, so will try to find the time to haul  
something out and photograph it --- if nothing else, might be useful  
as reference material.

My one concern is that we're not getting the ``W'' from ``Works'' into  
it (though we'll have to be careful in doing that lest we wind up w/ a  
clone of Adobe's periodic table of applications icons) which would  
help to distance it from the Textures design as Bruno noted.

FWIW, George Williams did a similar thing w/ the FontForge webpage:
