Green Fonts?

OK, now I've seen it all... green FONTS? Acutally, this is kind of interesting. Spranq, a Utrecht, The Netherlands creative communications firm, has created a font with "holes" in it called Spranq Eco Sans. This font apparently reduces the amount of toner / ink cartriges needed when printing (they claim 20% savings). The Ecofont website claims, "After extensive testing with all kinds of shapes, the best results were achieved using small circles." It looks very similar to Verdana (see example below):

They recommend using a font size of 10 or 12 so that the fonts are less... well, holey.
