I recently found this fresh idea utilizing web type. Manufactura Independente did a nice little write up which you can find in the links I posted.

Anyways, web type has always sucked, true type that is (not images).

They (Manufactura) managed to upload their first typeface (DIN, a personal favorite), and then create a split true-type typeface using fontforge. Then by overlapping the two you have an interesting true web type effect that is neat.

It is best to view this in Firefox.
