If there needs to be a bad guy here maybe the better finger-wagging 
would be toward John Warnock, for approving a Postscript spec that uses 
a coordinate system unlike anything else in the computing world, 
bifurcating the software landscape into bottom-zero and top-zero camps.

And ever since the Postscript licensing debacle which eventually 
prompted everyone else to join together to replace Postscript fonts with 
TrueType (not to mention the dismally wonky PDF format), who doesn't 
enjoy picking on Warnock? ;)
