    Dear fellow readers of all things from the lore of the Anglican tradition,

    Recently we have been hard at work to update the typeface (font) which powers the main Site (anglican.net), as the older font delivery systems were becoming outdated and we wanted to really update the site moving forward. We are happy to inform you that the update has taken place very successfully. The books published on the site should be practically indistinguishable from their authentic originals published centuries ago (at least that is our intent).

    Sample from Bishop Beveridge's Commentary on the Catechism:

    Beautiful work. Surely Baptized would have been written Baptised?

    Good thinking, @Aidan!

    However, I'm afraid that the spelling as we have it is the original one. The softened letter zed, as today practiced in Great Britain, appears to have changed (as so many other things!) in the nineteenth century.

    The original page from the 1720 edition:
