Ok. I was matching the previous text-only "logo" size, but a larger logo
matches the old text size.
I've made some samples using vera instead of gadget; while the gadget font
has a strong visual appeal in this application, I'm wondering if it would
be nice to be able to use the same font in the logo and throughout the web
One problem we've discovered with Gadget is that it is not well hinted, so
you get weird rendering artifacts if you don't hit one of the few sweet
pixel sizes (note the 'k' in the sample provided). We can obviously pick
a better size for the site logo, but that still leaves it looking ugly in
other environments, making it unsuitable for use within the web pages.
