The Reel Life: Time-traveling typeface edition

13 July 2017

A new development in a Pakistani investigation into the Panama Papers may spell trouble for Nawaz Sharif's government — and will spell it in Calibri, a common sans-serif font from Microsoft.

Sharif's daughter Maryam submitted a batch of documents that use the font to a team investigating illegal offshore properties. The documents were dated 2006. Since Microsoft didn't make Calibri available for public use until 2007, many have concluded that the documents are forgeries.

The typographical scandal was quickly dubbed "Fontgate" on Pakistani social media, because apparently –gate is the official scandal suffix for the entire world now. American cultural exports are really something.

The investigative team's report does point out that Calibri was developed in 2004, it's hard to figure out why Maryam Nawaz would have been using it on official documents before its public release.

Anyway, it remains to be seen if the alleged forgery will leave Pakistan facing the prospect of a sans-Sharif government.
