lowercase L


lowercase L is a blog dedicated to the misuse of the letter L. Blogger William Levin explains:
I have noticed that, when people create handwritten signs, they sometimes choose to capitalize every letter except the letter "L". I can understand using some lowercase letters like "i" and "y", to stylize the handwriting. But why confuse matters by using the only letter that, when lowercase, is identical to an uppercase "I"?

I have seen this before, but I didn’t know it was so common! Link -via mental_floss

If you look at the guy's blog, there are lots of phot examples given. Fair enough... If you examine these, though, you'll see many of the letters suffer from misused case. You'll see a small "i" in the middle of a bunch of upper case words, and capital "A" amongst lower case letters. And there are others... The "L" is hardly the only victim. It does look worse (IMO), though as the lowercase L should read as an "I".

Not so sure this doesn't make sense. . . Look at the sign above, is there any room for the _ on the L . . . Not really. Either they have to change the font size or cut off the _'s You all got the point. . . What's the problem?
