    well actually I think their both.
    They look pretty cool, but having to read a long text written in a small pixel font ruines one's eyes!

    Well on stuff like these footers they are are marvellous, cos the anti-aliased stuff just doesn't work below a certain point size.

    Pixel fonts are good if they are the good, simple pixel fonts. I saw one that looked like a little Times at a crappy font site. It was completely unreadable.

    Pixel fonts don't need to be tiny, there are small, medium, large and extra large
