    The website for the Australian design conference Field Trip uses Mark Simonson’s Bookmania. It’s a pity that the site doesn’t show off more of the typeface’s many special features – after all, Simonson included “every 21st century typographic nicety that one could ask for” (Rob Keller). Extra bummer about the too light weight for most text. And the straight quotes.

      It is using webfonts for almost all of the type though, so maybe the lack of special features is the result of limitations with browsers?
