Why when I do a simple Codepen to test/demonstrate simple concept, I can’t resist to change the system font to a better one ?
Is this what it is to be a typography addict?

When I need calm, “Saman” by Ólafur Arnalds is one of the songs I listen to very often. it is so beautiful and soothing. I love the mechanical sound of the keys.

The Squid Salmple from Alm is a beast. It give you so much flexibility. I have to dig more into it. busycircuits.com

@kot From a visual point of view, I think it's best to use space as a thousand separators. If a digit has a dot and a comma, these two characters are very close visually and can be confusing for people with visual problems.

@kot We do not use the same separators all over the world. For example, in Switzerland we use the apostrophe for the separator of thousands and the comma for the decimals: 10'000,90

The tests we've done with screen readers tend to say that you have to use the dot or the space in order for the number to be pronounced correctly.
The apostrophe is pronounced "foot" by the screen reader.

There's three accessible way to display number with thousand separator:

use a dot: 79.460,90 £
use a space: 22 450 CHF

do not use apostrophe. (aria-hidden and aria-label techniques do not work)

Back home after a wonderful conference in Edinburgh. Thank you to all the speakers for the invaluable advice and information they have given us. And thanks to the organizers @finchconf for putting together an event of this quality.
I hope to come back next time.

I’m the kind of person who have to be at the airport minimum 3hrs before.
And now, I’m waiting but I feel good.

First day of was full of really great content. Thanks to all the speakers and orginizers ! finchconf.uk/
