Interesting Article from Dictionary.com

I was having a look at dictionary.com to look up the exact definitions of the words that I am to use for my WORD assignment: hide, solid, float, culture, and remove. In a not so unbelievable coincidence, dictionary.com had up a very interesting article related to the evolution of the alphabet and the letter R and r. I thought it very appropriate to last weeks project where we had to look up the history of a single letter, and saw what I learned from that project in this article. I just realized now design and etymology are very much related.

Why Uppercase R looks different from lowercase r.
