Working from the new version, some things have actually gotten worse. Most egregiously, the word Black is now Blck!!! The job BlackMage is now BlckMage, for instance, and Black magic is Blck magic. Item on the menu now uses a squishy tile, so it looks weird. Ditto with White on the spell menu. The "it" digraph is now being used unnecessarily with Antidote, Potion, Hi-Potion, etc. The "ir" digraph is being used unnecessarily with Elixir, Fire Rod, etc. It makes them look bad, in my opinion. Also, was the "il" digraph always being used on everything? I'm thinking it wasn't. It's not needed for Mythril, Silver, Flail, Elixir, etc.
It's nice to see Summn instead of Eidln, though, and Trainer instead of Mediator (?!).
