The new site will support Microsoft’s Enterprise Mobility products, moving content (and creating new content) from TechNet and MSDN into a cloud first, mobile first modern experience.

To make a couple of long Twitter threads short, in a few hours, Dennis Delimarsky of Microsoft responded, fixed, and deployed a fix, and the results speak for themselves: is an interesting project with lots of promise, as Rafael noted, but sometimes something as simple as the wrong font can derail the most worthy projects.

We applaud both Rafael for speaking out, and for Microsoft (or at least this dedicated group) for jumping in and fixing a glaring but easily fixed error.
