The hard but right way.  :thumbup:

What says the jury if I cross Ts at the end, but do not detach the crossbar from the final stroke - instead just hooking back in a dramatic swoosh?

And why is it the right way?

Why is there no category for "Italic"?

That prevented me from voting.

Interesting, the word cursive meaning different things in different languages.

 

In Dutch this is cursive. I believe the German Kursiv means the same. The word Italic has no special meaning apart from: coming from Italy.

 

But in many languages, like English and French, cursive often means written with connected letters, without taking the pen from paper.

According to Wikipedia:

In typography, italic type is a cursive typeface  based on a stylized form of calligraphic handwriting. Apparently, letterdesign originated in Italy, hence the name.

 

On FPN we use italics also for a type of nib. Sort of Babylonic confusion..

Yes, it does. Only, you wouldn't start the word with a capital letter, since it is an adjectiv.
