Re: [isabelle] Warning: Usage of deprecated font command



Anyway, only very few packages seem to actually complain about
this change (KOMAscript is one of the few) and certainly the "world"
seems to not have noticed nor have cared.

To add another data point to this discussion:

The document "l2tabu" [0] is a general list of bad practices in LaTeX 2ε and has been around in one way or another for at least ten years (I remember consulting it heavily when learning LaTeX). Section 2.1.1 also advises against the use of "old-style" font selection for the reasons already mentioned in this thread. Interestingly enough, the authors of this document don't classify it as a deadly sin, but only as a regular sin.
