What font is this?

I was wondering if anyone could identify the font used for the "reprise" records vintage logo I have this album and I've tried using tools like "what the font" etc. but I just can't seem to find one that matches exactly. Any suggestions on something similar?

Need a definite answer for approximately equal

Here's the deal: I've exhausted my neurons looking for some kind of answer to a mathematical symbol stumper. I'd love to know who invented, originated, or was the first individual to use the double-tilde (≈) as a means of expressing/denoting "approximately equal" in mathematics. I know that Robert-Recorde is supposed to have introduced the "equals" sign (=) in 1557. Any and all assistance is greatly appreciated. I await enlightenment.

What's up with my character spacing?

When I print from Word 2004 (Mac), the character spacing is slightly off, but definitely noticeable. Random letters in random words will be closer or further apart than other letters. This happens when I print to a PDF or physically print a document, but not in the regular Word display. What's going on? [more inside]

Definately not comic sans

What fonts are good for on-screen readability at small pixel sizes (<12 px)? Are bit fonts better for this kind of thing?
