Hinting

This drawing for the "Web" book is about hinting a font. Ok, so you're saying to yourself, "what the hang is hinting?" Very briefly, it is the process of applying instructions to a font so it will know how to rasterize each character at different sizes. This is most important on computer monitors where the low resolution can really make a font look like do-do. Read the book for more info. This is my favorite of the bunch, so naturally they didn't use it.
