Well, yes, since attaching the password file is very like painting the
combination on the outside of the door of a safe...

...which may protect against some threat, though I can't offhand think
of a non-silly one that fits.  I mean, sure, a blind safecracker, but
what about his sighted assitant who helps him get to and from the room
with the safe in?  Silly.

In high-resolution print typography, designers enjoy considerable freedom
and control over the articulation of this [font size] range. In
low-resolution screen typography, designers don't.  -- Todd Fahrner
