Really, Mr. Insidious Font Engineer Man?

Who’s the guy who decided that the capital i and the lower-case L would be the exact same symbol in all my favorite fonts? Come on, man. I want to write “ill”, not an overzealous pause button.

And while we’re at it, could you please explain the difference between Helvetica and its French cousin, Helvetica Neue. How did you convince your boss that an infinitesimally thinner letter and a fancy name are worthy of precious kilobytes on my hard drive? You must contract out for college textbook publishers.
