Hi James,

It is helpful to be able to see an example, thanks.

Personally, I would prefer "Web" be a plain font. One reason being
that I find the word hard to read this way, and the other reason
being that applying the MIDI design treatment to "web" makes the
MIDI logo seem less like a logo.

Regards,

- TW
